Nutrients are a very important part of camellia care. Your camellias will need adequate nutrients throughout their life cycle, and they can’t get it if you don’t give it to them! Healthy plants grow better and bloom better than nutrient deficient plants.
To be successful with Camellias in containers, you need to make sure you are giving them the correct environment, and that starts with potting soil. Learn what type of soil will give you beautiful camellias for years to come.
Learn about growing Camellias in colder climates and what you can do to have beautiful camellias like we do in the the south. You'll read tips from the expert- Dr. William Ackerman who developed many cold-tolerant Camellias.
Many times growing Camellias in the ground is not possible. You may live in an excessively cold climate where winter growing is not right. You may also have limited space in your garden or the soil is not right. Good News! Camellia make excellent container plants and can be used almost anywhere!
Planting time will play a huge part in the overall success of your camellias. The idea is to plant at just the right time to give your plant time to acclimate to it's surroundings before climate conditions, such as heat and cold, create stress on the plant. A well established plant will be able to handle these stresses better than new plantings.
