Pot up heuchera plants, and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outside. When they are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before planting them outdoors. Heuchera plants dislike soils which are particularly dry or have a tendency to waterlogging. Plant them in moist, fertile, well drained soil, adding plenty of compost or well rotted manure to amend heavy clay or sandy soils. Choose a position towards the front of the border in full sun or semi shade.
Feed and water coral flower plants regularly until they are fully established.Apply a mulch of well rotted manure around the crown of each plant each spring. Lift and divide clumps of heuchera every 3 years in autumn to maintain vigorous, healthy growth.

  1. Size

    By Janet Bundle 15-08-2014

    I cannot believe the size of the plants, 2 of mine are barely an inch high from the top of the plug to the top tip of the 'tallest' leaf. I appreciate they are postiplugs but I did not expect to have to get my magnifying glass out to find 2 of them :( The choice of colourings is not upto the picture shown but hopefully they will all grow and mixed in with what I already have should look quite good, just a bit doubtful at the moment.

  2. agree - disappointing

    By Deborah Stone 24-07-2014

    I'm afraid I have to agree with Roger Cook here. I, too, was expecting a more contrasting variety of colours, as shown in the picture on the website. Also, the name says 'Patchwork Mix'', so all purple hues doesn't quite achieve that! I ordered two collections, so now have 12 plants which will probably have to be dotted around the garden instead of being planted in one or two areas as displays.
