Hi everyone,I'm back hoping for some more help with my efforts to create and maintain my garden and plants ect.I have some heathers in baskets and in ground,Can anyone tell me how and when i should trim them please.
Any help on this would be appreciated,Thank in advance for any help you can give me...Cheers.



Rather depends whether they're Calluna, or Erica, and if the latter, whether they're winter or summer flowering ones. In the case of Erica, winter flowering ones can be clipped over now to reshape, but don't remove too much. The summer flowering ones can be cut to the base of the dead flowers in spring. Calluna, again, cut to the base of the dead flowers, but in mid spring.
