Be sure to choose an appropriate location for your Camellia.
Planting Time: Plant any time of the year taking care to avoid temperature extremes on either end of the spectrum.
Sun: Part sun to part shade
Soil: Fertile, acidic, moist, but well drained
Water: When newly planted, water deeply at least twice weekly. Camellias prefer a moist soil, but are drought tolerant once established.
Fertilizer: Use our slow release fertilizer in early spring.
Mulch: Mulching is a great way to keep the roots cool, soil moist, and add nutrients to the soil. We recommend using about 2 inches of mulch covering the entire root zone.
Pruning: Prune after flowering if needed to remove dead and dying branches or correct aesthetic or structural issues
