Thank you MB - im sure i'll enjoy the hunt for them, i really like buying from garden visit's and small family run nurseries so its a double plus as you get to see local gardens and bring something memorable home to remind you of a nice day out too :)

Was typing reply to MB & SK at the same time!

"mother natures" on our side successes too :)

There's quite a lot of us on here who are 'hooked on heucheras', Bee, they are very addictive and should come with a government health warning :)

25 Jan, 2014


I'm hooked on heucheras too Bee, have been for a couple of years now, look forward to seeing your photos :)

"Hooked on Heucheras"
ha ha gee19 ....sounds like a good GOY username :0)

Oh dear ...Seems like we'll have to have a Heucheras Anonymous Group Louisa15 ;)

25 Jan, 2014


I am hooked too Beehf. After 3 years I divide my last year and the mild autumn was good for that. Watch out for 'Heuchera heave' as they can be damaged/die if left, I earth mine up if it happens as the roots will then grow into the soil.

25 Jan, 2014


YEP im now convinced with you too admitting to your addiction Drc726.....a GOY HA group is well overdue LOL!

Thanks for the advice will keep a check on that :)

You might like to look at my collection on my blog 'Just for me' June 2012, Bee. Most of mine are in pots but I am increasingly putting them into the garden too :)

26 Jan, 2014


Thank you very much Gee19 .....mine are all in pots too... im on me way over to hava Heuchera fix....wooo hoo :O)

26 Jan, 2014


Hi Beehappy ...
yes, heucheras are lovely ..
but very addictive... you've been warned !
Lol. ;o)

27 Jan, 2014


Hi TT -
I feel your warning has arrived TOO late :(
The proverbial "Stable gate" springs to mind ;0)
I have even tried to get a new interest in Helebore's but lovely as they are i find my mind "wandering back to the lure of those pesky (OH the varieties , the tantalizing names,markings and colours) Heuchs!!

And Gee19's blog was the final straw OMG i was in "Heuchera Heaven" seeing all them! :)

I think as i've mentioned TT - "GOY Heuchs Annoymous" is my only hope now LOL!

Just come across your blog Beehappy ! Welcome to goy .
I got hooked on Heucheras through Cottage Karen and am doubling up on the ones I have by splitting them and passing them on to my neighbour ! I love all the colours too !

16 Mar, 2014


Thanks for your kind welcome :)
Oooo Rose1949 your a Heuch professional now -how long before you were able to split them - i cant wait to be able to do that and share mine everyone's been so friendly on the forum with offers of help and plant/seed sharing- GOY is the BEST :)

I had them a full year before I split them Bee and also when they were all a good size .
