Since she was repotted and moved from her totally shaded spot at the front of the house to a more airy place in the garden she’s gone from strength to strength! 💗 #marchblooms #camellia #camellia-donation #pink #containergarden #mygardentoday 💚

They like dappled shade, preferably not east facing, and nowhere that gets too hot. 👍 @sharonhayden

I think I'm going to lose all the buds on mine, just too much snow and ice this year

In my garden the dull months are more about shrubs and colourful foliage than flowers, although winter pansies are always cheerful. I’ve had a pot of violas on a north facing doorstep since November and they’re still going strong despite being in the shade @charlotte

Try looking at Plantagogo to see which are best in full shade Charlotte, they sometimes have good offers @charlotte

This is a shrub that never ceases to amaze me. It’s been in a half barrel planter for many years in a north facing corner that never gets any direct sun. It seems to thrive on neglect and only gets a really good soaking when the gutters above overflow! It has flowered prolifically this spring with the branches almost bent over with the volume of blooms. I should’ve posted it yesterday under #tuesdaytreasures but today it can be a #wednesdaywonder #camellia #containergarden #pinkflowers
