I have a gravelled area of 40 square metres. I would like to plant low growing gound cover ( 4 to 6 inches high ) prolific flowering or multi coloured leaf possibly. What do you think of 'Heuchera ?'.

Any suggestions please ?

Many thanks,

I'll have to move them then. The other 2 do have a three foot wall  directly behind for some wind protection though.  The problem one hasn't - it's more exposed.

I planted 3 Acer trees i June this year. Two are doing fine and putting out new growth. The third ( don't know the name, but has green spindly leaves ) has shown no growth at all.  Tips of leaves are turning brown.

They are in anexposed north easterly position though.

Any suggestions please.

Identify Please ?

Many thanks.
