Product Information

Each of these stunning beauties comprises 3 plants in each pot providing stunning early season blooms in shades of Red, White & Gold.

Uniquely, because these varieties have been selected for their ‘lime tolerance’, they will grow and thrive in any soil conditions – usually Heathers will only be happy in acidic soil conditions – but this is no longer the case!

The evergreen foliage will be topped with bright blooms from January until early May each year with virtually no maintenance required… a gentle trim of the old flower stems in late May is all you need to do!

The three varieties included in each pot are- 
Carmen Red (red),
White Perfection (white) and
Mary Helen (gold)

Planted in beds and borders, each will eventually grow to approx. 30 cm (12”) tall and have a spread of approx. 60 cm (24”) across. They are also brilliant for planting in patio pots too! They are easy to care for, totally frost hardy even in the most extreme winters and will provide perfect early season colour every year for many seasons.

What Is Supplied

Top Tips

  • Heathers prefer full sun and a well-drained, acidic soil.
  • Heather can be planted anytime when the ground is not frozen.

Care Information

  • Before planting, water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • If your soil is heavy, open it up by adding horticultural grit.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well.
  • Heather should be pruned each year when the blooms fade, which will encourage more flowers.
  • Feed in late winter and early spring to encourage good flower colour. Use an ericaceous feed or one suitable for heathers.
