Lovely Dawn, love pieris but one thing that just doesn't like my soil :-(

This is a lovely planted area. Can't grow pieris here only in a pot, even then it doesn't grow well. Yours is a beautiful plant.

Fantastic Dawn , I must go and look at mine .. .....

They are like rhododendrons, they prefer acid soil. If you want to grow them in a pot, use ericaceous compost and you should have no problems. You can buy rhododendron and azalea food to keep them nourished.

Looks brilliant Dawn, mine is starting to flower again as well....

Thanks everyone. Sorry to hear some of you can't grow them. I think my well rotted manure has helped the acid loving plants.

Hi Dawn, Lovely plant, mine had two goes as well. Must have been the weather. I trimmed mine back slightly too to reshape the bush
