Giant Gerbera


By amelia


Just ordered 5 Giant Gerbera from QVC they flower from July- October, can’t wait to see them.

My Rhoda has started to flower and i have discovered a camelia behind a tree. Needs to be dug out and planted in the sun. :-) will get round to this summer

Hebe not flowering yet, can’t wait for those lovely purple blooms and all of those bees! :-)

I didnt think camellias needed full sun. if it is doing well I wouldnt move it. but obviously its your garden so you can do what you wish :o)

I like hebes very much. There are many different types. I lost most of mine when I moved here and tried to bring them with me :o( They are lovely aren't they.

Good on you Amelia. I was looking at the giant gerbera's too and was very tempted to place an order for them. In the end i decided not to as i wasn't sure if they were perennials or just annuals. I also thought the price of £4 per plug was a bit too expensive for me. They did look beautiful tho.You must let us know how they perform and may be some pictures when they are in flower.

Hi Amelia, don't move your camellia to full sun, it needs to be shaded from the morning sun and it must be happy where it is !!
