Good Luck with it, ive not been very happy with plants and bulbs from Lidls, i bought loads of various kinds of Tulips 2 years ago, but very disappointed as they all came up as the same variety, a big con by Lidls. Anyone else had the same experience with Lidls or Aldi`s

Sorry don`t recognise the plant tho

Well its definitely Camellia x williamsii - as to which variety, not too sure - could be 'George Blandford'. Nice healthy looking growth there - harden it off before leaving outside permanently.

Thank you Bamboo, acid compost right? Can I plant it in the ground near my wildlife area, will it survive?

Non alkaline, yes, and don't plant in an east facing position - tolerates shade, but will need some sun.
