Does anyone know what I can do about my Erica heather it appears to have died off in the centre but alive around the edges.
Thank you.



Peg down the live bits into the soil so that they root. Then use the rooted pieces to replant.

Had another thunk. You could fill up the central space with potting compost (ericaceous obviously). The live bits could then root into it and before trained back to fill the hole. I have done it that way to propagate Heather.
