Sickly Camellia



  • Ground near conifers can be very dry. You could pot it up (depending on it's size of course) and mollycoddle it for a year or two. I don't have acid soil, but I love camellias to bits, so I grow several in pots, and they seem to do well and any sickliness easily addressed.

  • I agree, and they do get a mix of rain/tap water. But they can yellow up sometimes which could be a function of the lack of food in the pot. However I like to grow them this way also because they can be on the patio, near the house, flowering where I can see them even when the weather is too cold to go outside. That's my excuse anyway...image
