Plant delivered early on day requested. It was for my mum’s 90th birthday, she loved it. The camellia had lots of flowers on it and more to come. Very happy with it.

Camellias (camellia japonica) are outdoor plants, and will bloom every winter through snow and frost. Originally from the far east, Camellias have thrived in the UK for hundreds of years and make a stunning addition to any garden for winter colour year after year.

Keep your Camellia well watered whilst in a pot, the compost should feel wet to touch. However, do not let your Camellia stand in water as this will rot the root system. It will like to be regularly watered but allow the excess water to drain away. If your plant arrives in a decorative pot without drainage holes, make sure you remove the plant to water it, allowing excess to drain away before returning it to the pot.

After flowering your Camellia plant can be re-potted in a larger pot with ericaceous compost and put outside on a patio or balcony or planted out into the ground. Camellias like acid soil, so choose compost suitable for rhododendrons and heathers and other acid-loving plants. When planting Camellias in the garden, choose a sheltered part-shaded position where you can see the winter flowers. Try to avoid a situation where the early morning sun shines on frosted plants because this can spoil the flowers.

Over time Camellias can grow into quite substantial specimens several feet high. In china, where these plants originate they have even been known to reach 15ft and 500 years old. Older plants are very hardy but young plants should be protected from frost.

Problem Solving:

If your plant seems to be suffering try keeping it a bit closer to your home, the brick wall’s residual heat will keep young plants just above freezing, or inside a greenhouse.
