Thanks @richard.spicer.7906 but the blooms don’t last very long, seems to brown quickly and drop

My Camellia is dropping all its petals, is this normal or is there a problem? #camellia #problem #sickplant

Hi Clare, what soil type do you have? Camellia like an acid soil, so need ericaceous compost. I looks like a new plant, how long has it been planted? 🤔 @jaynehynesburton

comment
clare2611

Hi @hayleyaj . Its been in that spot for about 3 weeks. Read they may suffer bud drop if they're too dry so going to up the watering a little and see how it goes then maybe look at the soil as it differs all over the garden. Thank you

hayleyaj

That was why I asked! All new plants, or those you move, need plenty of watering for the first few weeks 😃

That's a stunning picture. They also don't like sun first thing in the morning and a good feed of Sequestered Iron helps too 👍

Is this blight on my Camellia? #fungus

Was it very cold the night before this happened? Might just be frost damage. It does happen with camellias, something to do with the sun then thawing them out.

clare2611

@gardening_gems can't remember weather when I first noticed it. Also thought it might be where the petals are touching the wet pot?

I noticed the buds on mine are brown at the edges, I think it'll look the same way when it opens. I can only think it's been frost damage 😕

I've got a couple of buds opening but fingers crossed they look ok @suzyw
