Ericas - or Heathers to give them their popular name - are a great asset in any garden. It is possible to have them in flower for virtually every month of the year. Add to that, the different foliage colours and forms of the heather family, and you can truly get colour all the year round.
Soil type is a problem with some species and cultivars-varieties - but there are ways to overcome this to a certain extent. Container gardening is a great way of growing a wide range of Heathers, and some are suited to hanging baskets as a means of brightening up the winter months.
