TIME for a bit of colour – heather. This is not the sort which clothes the York­shire moors in late Au­gust; this is the Erica which pro­duces lovely spring flow­ers, comes in a va­ri­ety of colours and is look­ing pretty good at the mo­ment. It prefers a moist, welldrained acidic soil and plenty of sun­shine. Give it all th­ese and it should thrive. Af­ter flow­er­ing, trim off the old growth. It’s ideal in con­tain­ers or as ground cover and, depend­ing on the va­ri­ety, can grow from just a few inches in height to more than a foot.
