Thread: Camelia

    Default Camelia

    Brought my camelia up from England with me, does anyone know if they do well here or is it doomed!
    Don`t bother "repping" me it`s turned off.

    There are many types of camellias, some hardier than others. To protect the flowers from frost-thaw damage, position the plants away from full early morning sun and drying winds.

    I have a small camellia, bought from local co-op for 1.99 three years ago. I read up on it and thought it doesn't stand a chance in caithness, but it proved me wrong, earlier this year it flowered. I gave it no special treatment, but do have it in a pot.

    Thanks for that, will wait and see, have a south east facing corner at the front of my house which is fairly sheltered from the sea winds, so will try it there.

    Have three in our front garden. One flowered this year. I feed them them occasionally. They are growing slowly.
