Remember to water plants in well when you plant them, this first watering is more about settling them in than keeping them moist......even if you plant them in the rain you will still need to give them a good soak.
The plant on the right is typical, some times they'll be bigger and occasionally in the Spring they'll be a tad smaller. Of course size will vary a bit according to variety, some like 'Brownies' get big quickly, others are more petite.
I visited the Heucheraholics nursery today with the camera and I was totally amazed at the quality of the plants.
The new growing facility has really made a difference. Despite the variable weather the plants look perfect. The range of colours is impressive ...it looks like a great time to buy some plants as they are all big and fat after a good growing season.
Here's a selection of varieties that are ideal for shady places.

The file is a pdf, most computers can view pdf files, in fact most browsers will let you view it as though it was a web page. Be a little patient, it will take a couple of minutes to download as there are 20 pages, much of which is full colour photos - it's worth the wait!
The Heucheraholics catalogue has Jooles own descriptions for all of the plants within it. Unlike most web sites and catalogues Jooles has created descriptions that avoid USA terminology - and she has done them in her own inimitable style. We can't promise that all the varieties in the catalogue are available all the time, so look at the main web site for details of availability.
