The nice weather in October has confused a lot of our plants. I have the fuschia and the rhodedendrum out. This camelia usually flowers at least a couple of times a year including January. It has been in bloom all through December and has lots more waiting to bloom. It's my favourite plant- but unfortunately it is too close to the house and think it ought to be cut down. I keep putting it off- and then when it blooms so prettily when we have all the grey weather I don't like to consider not having it in the garden!
