Plant of the month - October


Camellias are beautiful plants and we have an amazing selection at this time of year, they come in a range of colours from white, pink through to deep claret in single, double and anemone forms.

They are excellent for London gardens as they will tolerate shade and are also evergreen so they provide structure in the garden during the winter months.

They need an acid Soil (use ericaceous compost) and the Williamsii varieties even self dead head , so really there’s no up keep needed other that keeping them watered in the summer months when next year’s buds are forming.
