Heuchera - What variety is it and advice on looking after it

Posted: 09/08/2014 at 22:35

Hello RC. I have a few Heucheras and have found that they do well in semi shade, I would not grow them in containers as they seem (for me) to do well in damp soil, which is hard to achieve in a small container from day to day.

I suggest that you google Heucheras - you may be amazed at the variety available, I am rather hooked on them; my favourite is Pinot Gris
