Karma Camellia

Just before we went off to Singapore we were kindly sent a beautifully packaged Camellia 'Kramer's Supreme' from the lovely folks at Plants4Presents. There is something particularly enjoyable about receiving plants in the post, especially when the box itself is a delight, and on opening the contents lived up to the packaging! A lovely healthy plant, full off buds and ready to burst into flower, along with a smart pot and care instructions.

Camellia 'Kramer's Supreme'
The Camellia itself arrived in great condition, sometimes you do not quite know what to expect when receiving plants in the post, but Plants4Presents sent us a very healthy plant. (thanks guys!!). We now just have to work out where to plant it. As camellia's prefer an acid soil with shelter and light shade we may opt to keep this potted - allowing us to move if harsh weather is expected - especially as they have a habit of producing buds and flowers at the same time as the last few frosts of winter!

Ours is a deep red, but to tie in with mothers day on March 10 (you have remembered haven't you...!!) you can also win a pink flowered plant for your mum (or your own garden if you prefer), with the rather marvelous name of ‘Scentsation’ - yes its a cheesy name, but its a lovely scented pink camellia, and should be in flower in perfect time for Mothers Day.

Dont worry if you dont win, as long as you order by 2pm on March 8th you can have the plant in time for Mothers Day. (see here for more details)

To enter simply answer the following question.
