I love gardening. I have a little garden in Alentejo, Portugal. A beautiful and quiet place where i spend good moments surrounded by nature.

Camellia

I thought my camellias were dying but it looks like they are recovering well. Today they have very beautiful flowers. I found here that camellias only develop well in acid soil so I went to measure the pH and verified that it was alkaline. I started to add a little vinegar in the water. It should not be the best method but I do not know another. #camelia #blooming #flowers #spring

That’s a beauty! I may borrow the vinegar trick if that’s the results you’ve had! 😍

Coffee grounds also raise the acidity. And that's a beautiful camellia my favorite😍
