Heucheras

Bought my first Heucheras last Saturday at a boot fair for £2 each! Just need to find out how big these get and what size container they're going to need!

I only have a couple of Heucheras Franny they are around 30/40cm and are planted in the ground. There are plenty of members who will tell you which is the best size of containers to use.
Watch out for the vine weevil larvae the love the Heucheras in my garden!!

They look smashing Fran...You sure will have nice displays...Looking at the nearest one in the Pot, I would think a Pot a couple of sizes bigger than that would be a good start, you can always pot them on later...I sometimes do a dry run, and just stand my plant in a Pot for size, and if it looks ok, it probably will be...Or if you want to plant with a companion plant, then choose something bigger, it's your call...have fun trying them out..:)))
A very good buy...

Thinking back to some of your Summer displays Fran...You seem to enjoy a of of Sunshine, most of the Lime Green Heucheras appear to favour shade...tho I don't know about all, as there are loads of varieties available, I expect googling before you decide, will give you all the spec you need on each one...
I thought my 'Chocolate' would be a good candidate for the hot sun in our garden, but it didn't like it, yet Obsidian, & Stormy seas, both dark, love the Sun...:))))
Good luck, fantastic plants to have...

Ooh Sue.. I didn't give their growing conditions a thought!
I will certainly do some research before I buy 'cos your right, my back garden is in full sun most of the day.Thanks :0)

No problem, I have a very hot back garden...they are such lovely plants, it would be such a shame for them to get crisped...which has happened to me...x
