I have had a camellia for about 4 months. It began budding but we are almost at the end of winter now and it still hasn't flowered? I have applied the right fertilizers and it also has a mulch of acid peat. Some of the leaves are also turning brown and it generally doesn't look that good. It gets enough morning sun and no afternoon sun and since our winter is our rainy season it cant be the water.... PLEASE HELP Bids

some camillias bloom at different times.Mine is budding up now and it blooms late Nov,Dec till about March,april.Mines grown inground& my winter is my rainy season.I keep manure around plant with pineneedles to help preserve moisture& fertilize with acidifier fertilizer spring& fall.My top of tree gets sun,but the lower parts don't.
I don't know much about your climate,but that it produces the waves for our hurricanes& I know ya have summers like TX.I have a garden friend in africa.If you tell me your zone I may know more.Have you checked your underside of leaves for mites?they would be small.they are usually grown in the south in the states& humidity is usually more in south,tn northern areas.but if was humidty you could places a drain pot lined with stones/gravel with water for humidty.

Glad you found the forum& hope you check in all the time.we are a great bunch!
