Developing my knowledge all the time. I love growing plants: barely any space on my windowsills, nor on my patio as it's full of pots. #renting.

I had a white one last year and I loved it but I managed to kill it by pruning back too hard 😅

@bluefox23 one of the many reasons I love them is how much some change colour. It’s gorgeously dark 💚

@bluefox23 just wanted to say thank you for your comment about my guinea pig. Thought it more appropriate to say here rather than there 😊🖤

It had really 'pinked' up now Kerry. My others are all white so love the fact this is pink. And it has a darker foliage than my other heathers. 😊 @kez001uk

@bluefox23 I lost my 8 established ones in the heatwave so tough only to a point 🤣

comment
bluefox23

Oh no! You lost 8!! How many did you have altogether, Kerry? I hope not 8!! I have 5, of which 3 were rescued painted ones in a pot together, and they are all flowering and looking good! 😊 @kez001uk

@bluefox23 I had 14 so still have a few left but they’re tiny still. It makes no sense to me why they paint plants but I’m glad you rescued them and they’re doing well 😁

Thanks @kez001uk and @grandmagizzy one of my other heathers has brown tips but the others are starting to flower! I am feeling better than I was thanks: The risk you run when you do some summer work in a nursery, and not the plant kind!!
