Calluna plants require a rich, well drained, acid soil. Choose an open position in full sun. When growing Heathers in containers, use a good quality ericaeous compost.
During the growing season, water Heather plants regularly and feed with a half-strength liquid fertiliser every 4 weeks. After flowering, trim Callunas with shears to remove faded blooms and promote bushy growth.
