Fiona Forde asked 13 years ago

I have two Heuchera Coral Bell Plants in my garden planted in similar areas, one is fantastic and the other is in trouble, the leaves at the base of the plant have become dry and brittle and essentially are dead, is this as a result of bugs and if so what is the best course of action.

This could be drought or more likely vine weevil grubs which do serious damage to heuchera. If the latter, there is not much you can do except to make sure when planting heuchera to mix soil through any compost used. You could try the Nemasys vine weevil control but perhaps too expensive for one plant.
