Can anyone tell me if Camelia's like an acid soil or should it have some lime added?

Help please.

(Haven't been here in a's everyone?)

Camellias like acid soil like rhododendrons and azaleas. Some sources recommend adding peat moss or other organic matter to the planting holes.

Wow!! Weezie.....I am impressed that you remembered me. I haven't posted that much and it's been a long time since I was here. Yes, I am off to the other thread to say hello.

Thanks for the advice.
