Moving a Camellia plant

I have to dig up and replant an established camellia plant due to some building work scheduled in the next 2 weeks. Are camellias deep rooted? what is the best location to replant and what is the best soil conditions?



  • Thank you for your advice. Much appreciated.

    regards Jack

    I need to move a camelia and was wondering what to do - and - there was this thread.

    As ever good advice easy to understand, thanks Verdun

  • I want to move my camellias from one pot to another and there are a lot of buds on it now.  Would I be best to wait until flowering over or am I OK to do it now in Spring?
