Camellias need to be in a position in your garden that does not receive the sun before mid morning.The reason for this that the flower buds can drop if they thaw to quickly in the early spring frosts.Placing them in a position that allows them to be heated up by air temperature before the sun hits them means that they thaw at a slower rate.
In addition to this they like a open soil,slightly on the acid side.In the summer months its worth feeding with liquid tomato food as this contains magnesium and potash both key to flowering for Camellias .
