The Garden Community for Garden Lovers



Since seeing Heucheras on this site I have fallen hook line and sinker as they say. In a sunny interval today I took photographs of my collection. I still have not managed to plant them in their permanent homes. I have most of them in what I term holding pots, until I decide how to lay them out. I apologise for the legth of the blog but this is love at first sight. I think my husband is going to lock me up to keep me away from the heuchera sellers. I have some at the end which I have had for a long time and I am not sure what they are. Where there are 2 of the same they are 2 plants. Enjoy.

Wow ! Great blog. I thought I had a lot - but you beat me ! I love them too, and have given over a complete bed for them. They are fantastic.

I wanted more than the 4 I bought from Vicky at Gardening Scotland but I must be sensible????? till the next time. She has so many that I can say I must have that my head spins thinking about them.

Never mind, you must leave something to buy next time. Can't have it all at once !!

Dont forget you will have to plant them all !!!!!

It would be easier to decide where if they would stop changing but you only need to turn your back and there is another colour change. Now that I have managed to list them all I can look at the size etc and hopefully next year the shade bed will be in place. I have hostas and other plants suitable for shade waiting to be placed also. They get put in holding pots and the whole lot transplanted in to a big hole when the time comes. I am having difficulty deciding whether to have them along the front of a herbaceous border or on a sort of rockery without stones or just in a flat bed. I liked they way they were shown off in the stand at the show. There were different levels. I'm trying to work out if that is a sustainable way to do it.

I made a list for Gardening Scotland and I still managed to buy one extra, but that is a step in the right direction. I like the fact that you can take cuttings of them so easily to increase your stock. I also took along my own packed lunch to save on buying those delicious Aberdeen Angus steaks on a roll that cost more than my plant and are gone in a lunch break. My plants are for life. LOL

They are very nice. I bought one after hearing of them on here. I can't remember the name . You have quite a collection. I hope you get lots more ;o)

The fact that they are evergreen or red or whatever means you have year long coverage to stop weeds as well as something lovely to look at.

14 Jun, 2010


Yes they fill their place well and are good value :o)

My friend is just like you & we always laugh about her at the shows as she always comes home with more.I now have three myself so could be heading the same way.

Wonder if they will subsidise us from the NHS budget as it is obviously catching. LOL
