We have a beautiful selection of Camellias just arrived this week.
Sourced locally, they are one of the most popular spring flowering shrubs. They do require acid soil, but they can also be grown in containers of ericaceous potting compost.
Camellias are woodland plants that grow best in shelter and light shade, although with careful watering they can be grown in sunny positions.
They prefer free-draining conditions, with plenty of organic matter, such as leaf mould, incorporated into the soil.
