    Hi Andrew,

    It's a pieris. I know they like acidic soil but other than that I don't know.

    I'm trying to repair one at the moment which is nowhere near as nice as yoursimage

    Thanks Victoria 

     

    i was hoping to move this plant into the front garden that is north/west facing and gets the sun from about 3pm onwards. 

     

    do you know if this plant would be ok there?

    Sounds like you have it right Andrew. add loads of peat when you plant it.

    Woodland plant, doesn't enjoy full sun although will tolerate it. Ericaceous or acid loving, but again I grow on chalk. Fairly tough plant and will produce flowers/ pink or red parts and berries.
