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
