    Hugh Evans camelia Camellias are just coming into prime flowering season, so it is the perfect time to go and choose one for your garden. Coghurst Camellias is a specialist grower, between Hastings and Rye in East Sussex, with a wonderful range of camellias to choose from.  They have plants in a range of sizes, depending how impatient you are, and at this time of year they are all in polytunnels so that the flowers will not be spoiled by extreme weather.  My favourite purchase from them has been ‘Quintessence’ a slow growing spreading variety with wonderful fragrant flowers.Their website is in need of work but you should really get yourself to the Nursery directly to be able to appreciate the scent, quality and look of the plants –
