Hello guys and thank you for visiting my blog. Today we are planting Camellias. I came across this plant when I was looking how to bring a bit of color to my garden all year around. Camellias are evergreen woody perennials. Green glossy leaves all year around and beautiful flowers in autumn or winter time when many other plants still dormant Camellias thrive. There is so many colors on market at the moment that you can choose witch one suits your garden best. You can grow Camellias in pots or in the ground.
1) Search for your Camellias, many online nurseries and gardening shops like B&Q offering young plants. As you can see picture above this plants are around 5 years old. I purchased my plants from Ebay nursery plant shop. Choose carefully as there is many varieties, sizes and colors.
2) You also need Ericaceous compost. This compost is acidic and great for any acidic loving plants. In this brand my Blueberry bushes just thrive. Camellias love low PH and good quality compost is essential.
3) Also use Bone Meal help your plants develop strong healthy roots. You can buy bone meal in any gardening shop. This is secret weapon of all gardeners. This substance proving the best condition for rooting as possible and one pack last for little while.
4) Then you need good size quality pot. This depend how many plants you want to plant. My is 35 cm diameter and I will plant in to this pot 3 separate plants. If you got only 1 plant choose smaller pot.
