Heuchera 'Lime Marmalade' help!

Posted: 16/06/2014 at 21:14

Evening all

Just looking for some advice on some Heuchera Lime Marmalades I've planted in my garden along the border.

I planted them last August and they looked great until a couple of months ago. Of the 7 all but two have flowered and now look pretty sad for themselves. The border is against a 2 metre fence and is easterly facing. Lot of sun until about 3pm, then shaded. The pics I've included show how close the healthy one is to the withered one. I thought these were hardy plants. Soil is moist and slightly clay based.

Any help much appreciated as they look great in the garden and I don't really want to lose them.

Thanks in advance for any help.

regards

Lloyd

Afternoon all

I have 3 or 4 clematis plants crawling over my pagoda at the bottom of my garden. I have a north facing garden and was just wondering if there's anything I could give them to help them along this spring/summer!

Any help appreciated.

Cheers.

Doesnt seem to carry the pictures. Is there a specific way of keeping the pictures on the thread?

Can anyone help me out and name the tree that dwells in my garden? Trying to learn a bit more about what lingers in my green space!! It turns pinkish in April/may and then green leaves through the summer falling off in November.

 

Any help appreciated.

 


I think I'll extend the border a bit to give me options and I like the idea of a tree in the corner.

As for the colour, I'm thinking this means time investment and as having 2 under 2 kids its somthing I haven't got a lot of. We do have a pagoda at the bottom which we are putting pots in that will give the explosion effect and also have well established clematis crawling all over it. Last summer was left and was amazed at the flowering until my neice cut the heads off them all and presented them to me as confetti!

Thanks again all.

Have a good day!!!!

12 metre border ideas!!!

Posted: 07/04/2013 at 23:04
Evening all! Just wondering if any kind soul would care to offer me advice on how I can line my border down one side of my garden with an interesting array of evergreens to over time hide a fence behind it. To set the scene my border is 12 metres by 0.9 metres. The fence behind it is 1.9 metres. I just recently moved into my first house and the garden is 12 metres by 25 metres wide. Very sterile garden as the past people had just grass and I've dug the first border. Plan being to line it with nice evergreens that over time will hide the fence. Problem being this is my first garden and the thought seems a bit daunting and don't want to end up with a mess! I've planted my first plant a Photinia (red tipped) and am now a bit lost for inspiration. The photinia came from advice and far short of putting 9 or so in thought it would be good to keep the same kind of plant but different colours that over time will blur into one! Any suggestions as to how to achieve this or bushes (this is how new to gardening I am I don't even know if a photinia is a bush or plant) that I could look up on the internet for inspiration would be most appreciated. Have a good night all.
