  • Watering

    In the first 2 years of your plant becoming established, make sure to water frequently, around 2 - 3 times a week during summer. If the weather is especially warmer it may need more frequent waterings. Try and use rainwater where possible. Potted plants require more watering as the soil dries out quicker. Wait till the top 2 to 4 inches of topsoil is dry but don’t let the compost dry out completely. Water the soil until you see it draining out of the bottom, make sure the water can fully drain away and don’t leave the pot sitting in water.

  • Best Growing Conditions

    If you're growing your camellia in a container find it a sheltered position, ideally on a north or west-facing wall. This will ensure that the early flowers do not get browned by frost which can easily happen on an cold east-facing wall where morning sun causes a quick thaw.
