New Heuchera Bed

New Heuchera Bed (Heuchera micrantha (Coral flower))

Inspired by another member 'Cinderella', I've just finished planting up my Heuchera bed after receiving 6 plants through the post this morning. They are only small but shouldn't take long to establish. Very exciting :-)

Wow this is so nice to have a heuchera bed .

I have started last year to collect heucheras mine are all in containers

Out of your collection I only have Palace Purple which is stunning.

Lovely, I like the way you have taken the time to number them and named them..thank you.:))

Looks good, my only concern is wether you have them too close together, but they will be fine for this year anyway. Well done.

Chilekat will you update this photo to let us see how it all looks as it grows together like a jigsaw I like your garden .

Cinderella - my plan is to let them grow together this year and then have enough to split and put in other locations next year.... seeing as I'm doing that, I thought I might as well put them close now so as to enjoy them mixing together sooner and be rid of the empty space quicker. ;-)

They seem to be ok for digging up relocating - I'll move them all around if it gets a bit hectic!

ScotKat - I'll keep you all updated, yes!

Thanks :-)
