Camellia Japonica 'Pink' 15cm Pot
One of the nation's favourite early spring plants, Camellias are, when given the right conditions, very straightforward and problem free.
Providing fabulous displays of flowers when almost every other plant is still asleep for winter, they’re ideal for giving a bold splash of colour when the garden is quite drab – plus they’re fabulous in pots where they can be moved to any part of your garden.
The key to success with Camellias is they need acidic soils - like Rhododendrons. This means they can easily be grown in pots in ericaceous composts, and provided they are fed with specialist ericaceous feed, will provide many years of colour and interest.
They are evergreen, and their neat, shiny tough leaves will provide a backdrop to other plants all year. Flower buds start swelling late the previous summer, and keep getting bigger all autumn and winter, until they burst open in early spring. The flowers can be caught by frosts when they are opening, but the buds are generally fine, and the plant is 100% hardy and tough.
