Companion flowering plants to plant among heathers

Posted: 03/03/2014 at 23:23

Thanks to Dovefromabove and Dave Morgan will try both of your suggestions.

Verdun - thanks for your suggestion of small conifers which is just what I have in my other heather bed and I'm pleased with that result. With this bed I wanted a bit more colour on show.

Again thanks for taking the time to suggest and reply.

Many thanks for all replies.

VERDUN - I've just found the labels I've kept from the plants.

Juniper Chinensis - Blue Alps (which is showing a little browning of the pendulous branches) &

Juniperus squamata - Blue carpet (this is nearly all brown now), but I note from the 'Position' on the label - wide range of soil conditions ' except extremely wet' , so I guess this is my problem.  With future (months or years?) weather conditions expected to continue wet, I could always put a pond in.

We live in a totally exposed situation on ALL sides of our property, no tree shelter; and not allowed to plant any.  Hedges are kept at roughly 3/4ft, as we are surrounded by farmland.

Hi

Does anybody know if box blight affects other plants near by, such as conifers, these have all been in place for about 4 years with no previous show of blight to any of them, but  2 of my specimen conifers are now going brown - or could this all be down to too much rain!

Many thanks
