How close together would you plant heather for above effect?

Also as these are lime haters how would you plant them in a container with conifer and bedding plants. What compost? Mixture?

hi banner
i would plant them about 18" to 2feet apart as they will spread.
if you are planting in containers you should use ericaceous compost .the conifer and bedding shouls do okay in this mix.ive never had any problems.
