Over wintering container-grown heucheras

This question was asked by
Alan W

We have some containers with heucheras and we are not sure whether to take them into a heated greenhouse over the winter. We also want to expand them ready for spring. What is good to buy now and how should we care for them. Sorry to be a nuisance but we don’t want to kill them off. (PS – We live in the Midlands. Somebody has to..!)

Hi Alan
Sorry for late reply (its been mad here!)
You can leave them outside or if you want you can bring them into a well ventilated cold green house or cold frame for winter.
Its the wet that will kill them not the cold! They mustn’t stand with their feet in water
If in pots outside you can put little feet under them to ensure the water runs out over winter
Any plants for sale on our website can be planted straight out now they are fully hardy ..all grown cold and most outside atm
Hope that helps
Kind regards Vicky

Difference between Heuchera Heucherella and Tiarella?

This question was asked by

Please will you explain the difference between heuchera, heucherella, and tiarella.

Your heuchera plants look amazing and my collection will definitely be growing.

Thanks, Jackie

Hi Jackie

Its a cross between a Heuchera & Tiarella.
Tiarella have heart & lobed shaped foliage of green with darker maroon or black bars the center.
They have starry flowers at the top of the stem like little pagodas ..their common name is foam flower

Heuchera have masses of coloured foliage with a more rounded or maple shaped leaf, and bell shaped flowers.

When you cross the two together you get Heucherella with all the Heuchera colours & fab shaped leaves and markings of the Tiarella
Starry flowers too! Fabulous!

Hope this helps
Enjoy your Heuchera, Heucherella and Tiarella
Kind regards Vicky

Would these be grow in a shady spot in chalky soil?

Hi Jania
Yes these would be great there as long as they get some moisture
Well drained is better than water logged for Tiarella and Heuchera
Hope this helps

I have a lifelong love of Heuchera because they keep on giving. I was thinking of a Christmas gift to send 10 or 12 plants to my daughter who has just done a makeover of her garden. I wondered if I sent her a Big splash of color such as your brightest reds, and either almost black or vivid lime green what you would advise? I mean are they even ready to plant in December?

Hi Eileen
What a great gift
What about…
Lime Marmalde, Cranberry, Gojiberry, Peach Flambé, Prince, Wild berry, Catching fire,
These look really lovely together
Maybe pop a couple of the same varieties to add continuity
We will ship in December but it does depend on the weather and we stop around the 10th as we worry they might get lost or delayed in the Christmas post
Thanks for your enquiry
Hope this helps
