My Heather is dying

fleurkatSeptember 12, 2004

A friend in Scotland sent me a small white flowering Heather plant two weeks ago. I have it outdoors in semi sun and have been keeping it moist but the leaves are turning brown. Is it too late to save itand if not what can I do to keep it alive? I will be bringing it indoors in the winter.

I just ordered some plants and was reading the info on them. It said they don't like to be wet and need good drainage, and they like full sun. Some Heather is more fragile than others, it may be able to stay outside in the ground all winter. You might check out They sell them and list the plants. You might also find out if the one you have is tender or not.
