Cracking Camellia

Cracking Camellia

Heralding the arrival of spring are the Camellia.  Spring is a great time for planting Camellia with their evergreen foliage and abundance of flowers.  Camellias are happy in the ground and in containers as long as they are planted in ericaceous compost and kept well-watered.  An annual feed with an ericaceous slow release fertiliser will ensure healthy growth and glossy green foliage. 

Camellia japonica are probably the best known and contain the largest number of varieties.  Camellia japonica form almost 90% of Camellia grown in gardens. 

Camellia japonica will flower from January through to April. We currently have loads of varieties in stock with more to come. Anything you like from 3L to 350L specimens! We even have the odd standard thrown in for that formal look.
