How to Care for Heuchera Dolce Toffee Tart Plants
Before you purchase your Heuchera Coral Bells 'Toffee Tart' perennial, be sure to read the recommended care instructions to ensure your plant remains happy and healthy for years to come!
When Should I Prune My Heuchera Dolce Toffee Tart?
We recommend pruning your perennial as soon as you notice the blossoms beginning to die off. Your Heuchera will produce new flowers, but you can help promote the process by pruning off the entire flower stalk. Doing so will allow your plant to focus its energy on growing new flower stalks and blossoming flowers rather than focusing energy on dead or dying parts of the plant. Also, if you notice any dead or dying foliage or branches, feel free to prune them off carefully. Doing so will allow your plant's energy to focus on growing healthy instead of focusing on fixing what is already dead or dying.
