Care: Camellias prefer a slightly acid, humus rich soil with good drainage. They will grow in either full sun or partial shade but do best with protection from hot sun. Fertilise in spring with camellia and azalea food, and mulch with compost (such as composted autumn leaves) or milled cow manure. Keep well watered, particularly when it is hot and dry.
