We bought this plant from Lidl about 2 years ago and last year we had only 3 flowers but this year we have lots of buds. Can you please identify the name of this plant as we lost the label with the name on it.
Many thanks

It's a Camelia

Agree, Camellia - keep it out of early morning sun over winter - sun on frosted buds means the buds fall off.

How big is the pot that it is in, if possible best in the ground.

The pot is fairly big. I have a small patio so unable to plant in the ground. Thanks everyone.

You realise this is going to want to grow to over 6 foot? As it is in a pot will need an ericaceous feed and, as already stated by Bamboo, keep out of early morning sun until danger of frost is past.

How do I say thanks?
