Garland Nursery Heather Planting Guide
Where to Plant
Heathers are best in full sun but can tolerate partial shade. Most varieties do best in well-drained, slightly acid soil. Soil may be amended with Gardener & Bloome Acid Planting Mix to shift the pH.
How to Plant
Prepare a hole at least twice the width of the heather root ball. Make sure heather plant is well-watered before planting. Set in a bucket of water for 15-20 minutes to make sure the entire root ball is saturated. Score down the sides of the root ball from top to bottom at least 4 times and an "X" on the bottom. Lightly rough up the outer roots. Plant so top of root ball is at the same level as the top of the soil bed. Fill around the root ball with a mix of amended soil and native soil to the ratio of 2/3 native soil and 1/3 Gardener & Bloome Acid Planting Mix. Water plant in thoroughly. Plant 12-30" apart, depending on the variety and landscape effect desired.
