    Heathers are wonderful little plants. Provided they are grown in acidic soil (or ericaceous compost) they are tough, colourful and most have a reasonably long flowering period. They are widely grown in rock gardens, and they make fine specimens for pots, but it is when they are planted in giant swathes (think Scottish Highlands) that they really look breathtaking. Flowers appear at different times of the year depending on the species, so it is possible to get flowers for most of the year if you have lots of different types. We have put together this starter pack of 6 mixed heathers. I'm afraid we cannot specify which ones you will get, but it will be a mixed selection of non labelled plants chosen for their colourful foliage and flowers.

  • Garden care: Cut back the flowered shoots to within 2.5cm (1in) of the old growth after flowering.
