There are hundreds of heather species and cultivars and in the garden centre we will always have a selection of Calluna and Erica varieties.
The Calluna are cultivars of our native ling heather and have been bred for their range of foliage colour andlate summer and autumn flowers of many different colours.
We stock Erica cinerea varieties which are commonly known as bell heathers. These are usually summer-flowering heathers.
We also stock Erica carnea and darleyensis cultivars which are the winter flowering heathers.
Planting a mixture of these types will give an all year round display of colour.
Heathers belong to the ericaceous family and like acid or peaty soil but Erica carnea and Erica darleyensis will grow in neutral or alkaline soil.
The hardy varieties of heathers which we stock in the garden centre are generally very easy. In the highlands it is best to trim all heathers in the spring.
They are a very effective ground cover plant and look wonderful in heather beds but are also excellent container plants.
The Garden Centre and shop are closed to the public because of the restrictions placed on us by Tier 4, but we are OPEN for business by phone, email or social media.
Our working hours will be adjusted to Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm.
We have an excellent stock of birdfood and heating fuel as well as our extensive plant stock. We are offering free delivery for a radius of up to twenty miles from the garden centre, a minimum spend of £15.00 will apply.
We would like to express our sincere appreciation to all our customers who have supported the business through a very difficult 2020 and very much look forward to seeing you again in 2021 once the Highlands returns to a lower Tier.
