Planting Advice

You can plant your Camellia at any time of the year, however the best time is in late winter. Choose an outdoor spot with partial shade. Your Camellia will do well in slightly acidic soil. Do not add lime to your soil.

Watering needs

Always keep your Camellia plant moist, especially in hot and dry weather. Use compost and mulch around the plant to keep its shallow roots cool and moist. Be sure to keep the mulch away from the trunk to avoid any potential rot.

Pruning Advice

You can lightly trim the tips of your Camellia plant during spring to shape or thin out its branches. This will also keep leaves dense and compact.
