#camellia flowering even better this year, maybe coincidence but since I started mulching with the needles from the Christmas tree each year it seems to have really helped! Have a great a Friday everyone! #red ❤️❤️
Morning Richard mine did the same hardly any flowers for years now it has loads. It is in a pot though. I have moved it about a bit but seems to like to spot it is in at the moment 😊 yours is a lovely colour 👍
My word that is really really nice! The one I bought earlier this year I mistakenly put it in a pot (it was flowering nicely in there) then I realised it should be planted in the garden. It's not doing so well there sadly. No vibrant colour like yours 😕and the flowers aren't lasting long before they turn brown. Is it because it doesn't like where it is do you think? #advice-camellia.
Camellia do make good container plants, the main reason being when the garden soil is too alkaline, it can be controlled in a pot with ericacious compost. So I don’t know if you know what pH your soil is? Another possibility is position, it is a woodland plant and therefore probably wouldn’t like direct sunlight. But finally, mine has taken a long time to get to this, it didn’t flower at all for 6 years, so it may just need a little time! Hope this helps. @midnightgardener
@rbetts25 Yes that really does help. I'll have to get Ericaceous compost again I'm not sure if I got it for this Camellia (might have forgotten I've done so much gardening these past weeks) thank you very much for your help 😊
