September Plant of the month

Autumn Time is Heather Time

Heathers are a great way to add a beautiful pop of colour to your garden. They are a hardy evergreen plant and are easy to care for. They provide excellent ground cover and are ideal for planters.

Heather Care Advice

  • Heathers can be planted at any time of the year
  • Plant in an area which receives a minimum of 4-6 hours of sun
  • Heathers are acid plants - plant in soil of PH 4.5 - 6.0
  • Provide protection from cold winter winds
  • Water and feed regularly
  • Pruned by shearing back spent flower spikes after they have finished blooming
  • Remember Heathers are shallow rooted plants, so take care when weeding
