Gold at the RHS Halls

Heucheraholics took a Silver award at the RHS Halls show this week, a seriously good result given that it's very early for Heucheras - the plants looked great, and were showing off their cold weather colours whch are just as exciting as the summer growth, just more subtle.

The Gold was in the form of the new salver that Sean is shown modelling.... a classy way to hand change to customers..... and a cunning method of avoiding passing over grubby, wet change from a mucky nurseryman's mitts (perhaps that should read: nurseryman's mucky mitts).

Heuchera 'Snowstorm' was looking especially dramatic in it's intense mottly Winter 'plumage' . The Purple Heucheras were eyecatching too, so much so that a couple of varieties have sold out ...but they'll be back soon.

Tiarella Time

Tiarellas and Heucheras are good chums, they have a lot in common. They both have woodland origins and like some shade, of course they both have fantastic foliage but when it comes to flowers most people would agree that Tiarellas are way out in front in terms of earliness, prettiness and quantity of flowers.

Tiarellas on the Nursery are looking plumptious, full of promise so it's a great time to get some in. Plant them now and you'll get full benefit of this seasons flowers.

Take a look at the Tiarellas available from our nursery
