heuchera coco when will it be in stock

This question was asked by
Geraldine C

will this plant ever be available in this country as you now have a price for it and I left message to contact me when in ,as I would like 3 plants for a pets resting place
Thank you
Geraldine Claridge

Hi Geraldine
It has been a couple of years since we had it.
Sadly we are not allowed to propagate this variety as it has a PBR which we don’t own the rights to.
I do keep trying to get it by ordering the plug plants from labs that do have the rights.
However nothing has come of our 2019 order yet. First of all they said it was coming and now I’ve heard nothing.
There is still time and I will tbe chasing it it up regularly.
This is the problem with many of the ‘out of stock’ varieties.
I could sell loads if I could get them so don’t worry I will always be on the case (it’s in my interests as well as yours) it’s very frustrating!
I can’t even offer you a substitute as there isn’t anything quite like it ..its a beautiful variety.
Sorry once again
Fingers crossed I find some soon
Kind regards vicky

I try to dig out and carefully ease but it is an endless task.
Any suggestion that might help please.

Thanking you

Hi jill
I am sorry I don’t have any magic cure or magic tricks sadly.
But here is a link to the RHS advise concerning ground elder.
Hope this helps

I know it can be done as my neighbour had trouble years ago and followed rhs advise and now has no problems.
Good luck x

Please could you advise on pot size needed for heucheras. Possibly 3 to a pot? And what plants would you suggest as a contrast of shapes etc. which need the same growing conditions.

Many thanks.

Hi dorothy
Three plants in an 18inch pot would be great.
Heres a couple of combinations that would work
As you dont say if its sun or shade
I’ve done one of each

Pot for sun
Heuchera violet shimmer
Heuchera Rio
Heuchera glitter or Thomas

Pot for shade
Heuchera sweet caroline
Heucherella brass lantern,
Tiarella emerald ellie

Hope this helps

Kind regards vicky
