I love the look of this combination, but with it being one of each of the four varieties - how big an area does the combination cover? the "grows to ?cm" for each plant is that height, or spread? Advice on how far apart to plant these would be great.

Hello, Planting distances will vary depending on if you are trying to create more immediate impact or are happy to wait patiently for them to grow. The Polypodium and Euphorbia for example have an eventual spread of around 1m, while the Bergenia will spread to 75cm and the Liriope 45cm.

When is the best time to divide a Heuchera Plum puddin?

Pansy

Hello there It is best to divide them in the autumn.

Hi there I have a small patch of soil (about 1.5 m2) at the front of my shared block of flats. I'd like to brighten it up with a pretty, but hardy and low maintenance combo. Would these look good? I'm after something that would provide good ground cover, ideally evergreen, but also some standout perhaps more colourful flowers. Thanks!

Deborah

Hello, Personally I love this combination, and it does contain some very low maintenance plants that will offer some colour throughout the year.
