Do you ever have a green thumb. I'm just a beginner with limited resources, but I try. You, on the other hand, are a pro gardener.

Amazing!!! "Camelia Goals"... As the youngsters would say! Our camelias are little & want to be like yours when they grow up 😂

They (mum and dad) have another further along this fence which is twice the size in width.. shades everything under it @fifififi

Morning 🌞 officially the first few flowers have bloomed on the #Camellia might just be me but they seem so delayed compared to last year @justin @mikethegardener? Might just be me though! #pink #flower #spring #2017

comment

I think that last year was a little exceptional because of the milder winter, certainly where I am anyway! My largest camellia started flowering late November the year before which was just weird but this year it's behaved itself 😂 the red one I have has only started this week too so I think things are sorta on track 👍🏼

Morning Kyle my plants often seem behind others too, my hellebores are just sprouting and only have one leaf unless there are different varieties that flower different times 😮

2w
comment
kyleleonard

Remember my first photo @keely @justin? The photo of all the dead flowers from the Camellia in the bucket.. think it must have been May.. so maybe they bloomed later than I thought

Keely

Its great that you can scroll back to look I did exactly that when everyone's hellebores were out and mine were def late Spring 😃

comment
kyleleonard

I saved under 'garden' so I'd have to scroll through to the end 😞 but I remember the bucket full of flower heads. Only thing I dislike about them! Covers everything below it with dead flowers @Keely

@kyleleonard I didn't know you could get camellia seeds, did they come from your camellia?

2w
comment
kyleleonard

@shelleyB - yes! Only the past two years. Tree must be about 15-18 years old. It started to form these large fruit-like pods which it has never done before

2w

shelleyB

@kyleleonard one of my camellias is about 15 years old so I could be getting these over the next few years, I'll look forward to it

@belindah - I have two of the same Camellia, one I've never seen them on. So strange

Mine struggled for years in the ground so I finally put it in a pot about 3 months ago and in more shady position and I'm trying to only give it rain water and it's already looking much happier so I'm liking forward to

@belindah - I never really do much with mine - don't give it any special treatment or anything. I believe they've been here about 20 years so quite established

They must be very happy where they are then!...mine was a present nearly 10 years ago. ..I tried it in several places around the garden and it never took then thanks Gtags advice on it

It now seems to be doing well finally. ..it seems to be particularly sensitive

@kyleleonard Do you plant the whole pod or are there seeds inside it?

kyleleonard

About 3/4 seeds in a pod, they start to crack which is when I take them off the tree @steven2016

@charlottejhurst - should it be bigger than this after nearly 9 months? It has a good root system which is good. It grew a third leaf but was scorched a few months ago and it fell off, now it's got a new third leaf forming

@kyleleonard it's a hardy bush. So its got to put a lot of work onto itself to withstand all the weather that will be thrown at it 😊
