Heather - Dying?

Posted: 13/09/2013 at 16:25

they do not like clay soil or being to wet although if you go up on the Quantocks where heather grows naturally,it is not clay soil but a light red soil.they are hard to get going but the flowers will die and you cut those off lightly and next year they will flower.Although they need watering at frist to settle them in dont over do it.
