Heliotrope

‘Scentropia Blue’

Heliotrope

November tip: These ‘tender’ plants need it snugly over winter, like us. If in containers, move to a sheltered spot protected from wind and frost and add a layer of compost around the base of the plants. If not in containers, add a thick 10cm layer of compost or wood chippings without smothering. If it gets really cold, you may lose a plant or two – don’t worry, it happens! If you have a conservatory or coldish sunny room, you could also bring the plants inside. Avoid them getting too wet or dry too.
