I have been growing marrows successfuly on a patch of gravel.Iwould like to make a heather bed.WOULD IT WORK?



Just make sure the soil is acidic first and try and plant spring/autumn flowering heathers so that you will have interest through the year, if you trim the heathers directly after flowering then you will keep them nice and compact otherwise they get very leggy and you wont be able to cut into the old wood, you could let them grow into each other with carefull trimming and you will have a lovely tapestry of heathers which look fantastic.
