Planting

We recommend planting Erica x darleyensis as soon as possible after delivery, in a flower pot or planter. Choose a pot with holes in the base to provide adequate drainage. Cover the bottom of the pot with gravel or a layer of hydro granules. Put fresh potting compost in the plant pot and mix with some garden peat. Place the root ball of the heather at the right depth. Fill with compost and press firmly. Water generously immediately after planting and put the plant pot in a spot in full sun or partial shade.

Darley dale heather planting combinations

Erica x darleyensis is an exuberant winter flowerer that brings a lot of colour to your patio. Put the plants close to each other in a patio container, you can then enjoy the small white and pink flowers for months. The Darley Dale heather can be combined well with Eastern teaberry (Gaultheria) and Leucothoe ‘Scarletta’. Because of the compact growth and the small evergreen leaves, Erica x darleyensis makes an excellent ground cover plant.

Care

Water your Darley dale heather regularly, so that the root ball does not dry out. For an extra rich flowering we recommend adding plant food when watering during the flowering period. After flowering the entire shrub can be cut back.

Extra

Erica x darleyensis flowers at the end of the winter until early springtime and is popular with bees and bumblebees. This compact small heather shrub keeps its leaves throughout the year. Erica x darleyensis is winter hardy and can grow in a pot as well as in the garden. They like soil that is slightly acidic. The bushes we provide are in pink and white. Also known as winter heath or heather.
