Lots of Colourful Heuchera for your Garden ready now

We realise that it’s hard to plan what to purchase and that our stock is dependent on so many things, not least of all ensuring our plants are as healthy as they can be so they are ready to go! Couple that with sometimes plants get sold as quickly as we can add them to the website.

With that said, we have plenty of these Heuchera available for sale so you have a great chance of getting what you’d like.

Heuchera ‘Wild Rose’ has stunning rose-purple foliage which really stands out in a crowd! Deep purple veining and a good tidy habit. 

Heuchera ‘Cranberry’ Indian Summer Series has stunning red semi ruffled foliage with lovely wands of white flowers 
Neat habit and very attractive to bees.

Heuchera ‘Lime Marmalade’ RHS Award of Garden Merit (AGM) Very frilly dense lime-green foliage, with white flowers on tall stems.

How to get rid of Vine Weevil Grubs

Nemasys is a biological vine weevil grub killer. Apply in the evening or dull conditions such as rainfall as soil must be moist before and for at least 2 weeks after application. This size pack pictured does quite a sizeable area, however there are packs for smaller areas as well depending on how much you need.

One application provides control for up to 6 weeks, if you need continues protection, re-apply at this time. It’s super easy to apply and will keep your plants nice and healthy.

Keep unopened packets in the fridge to keep them fresh. They don’t wake up until added to water! We don’t sell these but they are widely available at garden centres and on Amazon if you have a look.
