@pelly This one just hasn't stopped flowering since I got it. Just noticed a flower on the ground. Might need more support in there ♥️♥️

Dr King is flowering like mad now! These have flowered since yesterday but I think I need to support the shrub. The branches are dropping over with all those buds and flowers! 😀♥️♥️

@jeatacake Oh no I wonder why? I dug my old ish one up yesterday and filled around with acidic compost. I can never seem to spell it right but you know what I mean 😊😊♥️

Ericaceous to you! 😁 I have another that's not flowered & it may need what you've done, the acid compost renewing?🤔
