Looking After Your Camellia Jury’s Yellow
Generally pest and disease free, Camellia are an easy to grow evergreen, garden shrub, originally a woodland plant, so preferring an acid to neutral soil, which is fertile, moist and well drained, within a sunny, or partially shaded area in all types of garden, from the informal cottage garden to the more formal town/city gardens. A low maintenance large shrub requiring little or no pruning, although removal of any damaged or unwanted branches to maintain shape is best achieved after the flowering period, as the flower buds are formal late Summer/Autumn for the next seasons flowers. Apply a good mulch of well rotted garden compost or general purpose fertiliser around the base of the shrub in Spring to encourage fresh new growth.
