Camellia not flowering

Asked 1 year 4 months ago by [email protected]

I have had my camellia for about 5 years and it has never flowered.
It is very healthy looking and is in a south facing border.
What can I do to get blooms?

Camellias need an acid soil

Posted 08 Feb 2016

Camellias need an acid soil to grow well. Pruning late in the year will cut off flower buds, lack of feeding and water at flower initiation will stop or reduce flowers. If you need to prune do so mid spring, feed with Miracle Gro Azalea, Camellia and Rhododendron Plant Food as new growth starts in late spring/early summer and make sure that the plant does not dry out. Sometimes camellias can take quite a few years before they produce flowers.
