Heuchera Corner Early Spring


Heuchera Corner Early Spring

It is still very early and I have just given this area a drench of liquid seaweed to wake up my Heucheras. You can see a difference even after two days. The next thing to flower after the Hellebores is the Rhododendrons. And then after that there will be Geranium phaeums, species tulips, and by then the Heucheras will be growing well.

Thank you. It's the tricky spot here. North East facing corner with very heavy clay and a large plum tree at the top. Slopes down about a metre from the road so its dry at the top and muddy at the bottom. A real challenge. But I think we are really getting there. I have lost so many Heucheras up there. Its a Heuch graveyard! As you can see though, the Hellebores and the dwarf Rhody's love it!

I have lost so many things down the years , slopes are awkward to plant up . When I first did garden it was level , I still have no idea how I made such a mountain lol . You done a fine job . I know from experience it's a pain to manage :D

A lovely corner of your garden.....I like a slope....adds interest to a garden......we made a very boring flat garden into a sloping one...with steps the whole kaboodle!

Well, yes, it does add interest. This garden is very lumpy and bumpy Angela. But the road is about a metre above the lawn, and then it slopes gently up again to the cottage. The back is fairly flat, but even that has weird slopes. You only notice when you try to put a chair on the grass! :)
