Well, we cannot grow Camellias here in much of the garden as the soil is full of lime-mortar and that definitley affects the leaves of any Camellia which we have planyed.

I would agree with Dove about filling the bed with Ericaceous compost though.

Not read the original article, but will add my pennywirth about the gravel on top. It needs to be at least 2 inches deep to stop Vine weevils from laying their eggs. That depth is required to prevent the dult from smelling the soil which she needs to do before egg laying.

Join the club. We cannot keep them either and we actually have damp woodland conditions. If you do get them to flower then sow the seeds when ripe and at least then you may have baby plants to keep them going. Ours only flowered the once and then petered out.

The ones under Ryan's Cherry tree wil be either C hederifolium if they flower from August onwards or C. coum if they start in January. If you want more then leave the flowers alone and let the seed pods develop. Either then collect the seeds when the pod bursts and sow immediately or let the ants takes the seeds away and plant them for you.

That is still a Cyclamen persicum. They do come in various colours from whote to deep red and in various sizes from tiny to big and with different leaf markings. They are still persicums though.

There are other species and forms too I should add.

And to make it easier to find one, it is Cyclamen persicum too.
