Hi there
planted some new Heucheras this summer, but they seem to be suffering a bit now, I’ve put them in a nice damp spot, always nice and wet there, all the time in fact.
What is the best soil condition for them?

Hi Dean
Sorry your having trouble with your Heucheras
You mention that you have them in a ‘nice damp position, in fact wet all the time!’
Heucheras don’t like to be over wet, in fact it can kill them very quickly.
Heucheras like to get moisture but it must drain away to ensure they don’t go rotten.
If your ground is very wet why not try putting them into containers.
We have on our patio Heuchera Thomas which does very well
