 Did you spot the Key Lime Pie heuchera in the pot, Artjak?

03/06/2013 at 14:30

I've got a couple of these lime marmalade heucheras, http://www.cowellsgc.co.uk/p/heuchera/32-heuchera-lime-marmalade-1l-66944.html

They have grown really well in a shady spot, they are very bright, although they do have a look reminicent of a bright lime green lettuce

I went abit OTT with the heuchera in my new garden last year, must have bought a dozen different types, from lime, to bronze, red, purple etc, they are a great started plant as they grow fast and add instant colour, i really love em. I bought 2 more last week.. damn wish they didn't keep bringing out new ones! My gardens gone from a field when we moved in to something resembling a garden in 18 months hehe.

Let's see the pics then Andy

My Scottish heritage gets great delight from heucheras.  They give you colour in the garden all the year round and lovely flowers in the summer plus they are so easy to increase.  my lime green one became four fine plants in less than a year.

actually i was looking around this weekend and it's getting to the point where i'm not too embarased to show pics hehe will get some done this week in the sun

 

Put it this way this was the garden when we moved in, to say it had a lack of plants is something of an understatement! Unless you count, creeping buttercup as a plant that is.

This yellow day lily is perfumed too. My son gave me the cornflower for Mother's Day when he was about 10 or 11 and he's now nearly 30!

And pinching ideas - at least that's what I do.  I cannot believe the increase in tempo now the temperature has gone up.  Photos and stories galore.  just shows what a bit of fresh air can do!  The aerial photograph is great.  There is a good video of my front garden on Google Earth!  They just happened to be passing with the camera rhe year I won a Silver in Bristol in bloom for my front garden1
