Hiya,  I am going to keep an eye out, replanting at a deeper level is too much for me, I don't understand fully why a plant would want you to do that for them.  As I say I am not a sophisticated gardener, if a plant doesn't work I just try another type, spot etc.  Having said this good luck to everyone!

ps.Verdun I will let you know how I get on with Rings of Fire here.

Dreamsofspring. Heucheras are woody things and naturally try to grow out of the ground ....that's why you plant them deeply. Most plants would not like that

I was hoping that Heuchers might be useful to provide winter colour in plant pots over the winter. Am I being too ambitious or even deluded?

Hiya scottcake

Neither too ambitious nor deluded.  Could I suggest you use John innes compost though?  Two reasons....firstly Heucheras like good soil.  Secondly vine weevils......their arch enemy.....prefer mpc.  I would also top dress with grit as an additional deterrent to vine weevil

Scottcake I had some in pots last winter as I was between houses. They grew really well and needed very little attention. Split them and repotted them once I'd moved end of February then  planted them out in the spring. Mine were all tiny little seedlings collected from some steps at work just over a year ago. All good big plants now
