Re: Re: heather was: soil types and pH

Athough I have no personal experience, I viewed a garden road display a
few weeks ago that had some. When I inquired about it, the gardener
stated that they had to be in well drained sand or they would not
survive here in Zone 5 IL. Also commented that only certain varieties
are hardy here and to watch where I purchased them from. Local nurseries
do not have them. It was quite busy with the open house, but she does
get them thru mail order. Figured when I was ready for them next year, I
would ask where that was...
