Heucherella in strawberry planters?

This question was asked by
Anne

Do you have any suggestions for growing Heucherella in strawberry planters. What varieties do you have for this purpose, how are they sold and also tips for growing on.

Hi Anne
Heucherella would be lovely in strawberry planters
Our are grown and shipped in 1 litre pots.(please reuse or recycle the pots)
They don’t like to be too wet so good drainage is essential.
Not much maintenance really just a tidy up in spring and when ever its needed throughout the year.
Feed now and again with a low nitrate feed such as Lou’s alpaca poo or seaweed we will have all for sale on website soon.
Or a once a year slow release feed also available on website..
We have redstone fall and autumn cascade ready for shipping at the end of February beginning of march, weather permitting as we don’t ship until its the beat tome to plant.
We will have other varieties throughout the season.
We are in the middle of a website update ( all still working and able to order from)
Hopefully we will have a few things added to make it easier to shop and see what available etc. (It won’t look much different but it should be a faster shopping experience.
Hope this helps
Kind regards vicky

Advice!

Hello, Can you tell me the best heuchera to grow in containers please, I’m thinking a pinky/bronze colour.

Janet Sidney.

Hi Janet
Any Heuchera in a container will do well as long as its well drained
I attached a picture of Heuchera Walnut which is a big variety with bronze leaves and pink undersides. It depends on the size of your container too !
Smaller varieties with pink foliage would be like Heuchera Pauline, larger pink variety would be Pinot Gris, Coral berry, etc.
A great variety that usually does very well is Heuchera Marmalade (not bronze though) looks great in containers or you could mix them, having lots of different colours
Its difficult to choose one variety
Hope this helps
Kind regards

This question was asked by

Hi there,

I was wondering if you had the dates yet for your 2020 open days?
If not, do you know roughly when you might have them? My sister is a huge heuchera fan and she turns 40 in April. I wanted to surprise her with a visit to one of your open days but she isn’t local, so just looking at the calendar before she books herself up with other things.
Best wishes,
Lizzie

Coach Access

This question was asked by
M. Mccarthy

Hi

We have been asked by a group that would like to visit for a price for a coach. Please can you confirm whether we can get a coach to you or what alternative arranemetns there are? It is a small coach 35 seat – 9m in lenth.

Many thanks

Max

Hi Max
Thank you for your enquiry
In the past we have had large coaches drop at the front then park in a lay by about 1 mile away.
We can get 7 1/2 ton lorries into the drive comfortably so you might be ok.
Its a double drive, the lane is narrow which can be an issue for long vehicles.

If they are coming they need to book a slot with us and arrange a price.
We are not open all the time only open days and by prior arrangement.

Hope that helps if you need any further info please just ask

Kind regards vicky

Why can I only order 1 plant?

This question was asked by
Annice M

Why can I not order more than 1 plant of a geum?

Hi Annice
Was it Geum Flames of Passion?
If its that variety we only have 1 left until spring, when we will have more.
Some of the other Geum’s are still available in quantities
Hope that helps
Kind regards
