CARE of Heather (Calluna):

Calluna or Heather is a small perennial evergreen ornamental shrub that likes acidic soil and a sunny position. This plant is also sometimes called summer heather because it blooms in the summer, unlike the winter heather (erica). The color of the flowers can vary depending on the species. Calluna is a good ground cover and very attractive to bees and butterflies.

Planting instructions:
Can be planted all year round, but the best time is autumn. The soil may be poor but contain absolutely no lime or salt, it grows best on an acidic, humus-rich, moisture-retaining and nutrient-rich soil. When planting, it is strongly recommended to improve the soil with peat, heathland, living humus or compost. Also suitable for containers and pots.

Every year some organic fertilizer or lime-free manure: fishmeal or seaweed-based.
In the spring, remove the tops with a hedge trimmer and trim the plant. Regular pruning or rejuvenation prevents the plant from becoming bald and also promotes flowering.
