@jeatacake still surprises me how different the flowering times are between our areas. It’s not that far, relatively speaking 🤯

It is surprising as you say. Maybe it's because I'm in a slightly elevated location here & probably get more cloud too? 🤔

I like this variety better than the ones I see locally. 😊👍 I was actually just sitting and thinking if I could add one to my garden but I think it would clash with my pink, purple and blue colour scheme.

@ublaszko it is a little different from the typical ones you see. Was just a cheap thing from Tesco too 😂 it’s a shame but the red wouldn’t fit so well, especially the bright new growth 😜

You'd be better off talking to someone in your area about pieris and their buds. I know they'll grow here, they are common-ish but they are in the ground and mine's in a pot so I bring it under cover to keep the roots from freezing. I'm wondering if I should just leave it where it is. I really ought to decide where it should go and plant the darn thing!
