March's Plant of the Month

Camellias are one of the most popular winter and spring flowering plants which is why our Outdoor Plant Team here at Tong recommend it as the Plant of the Month for March.

They are an ericaceous plat requiring acidic soil. If your soil is not suitable for the plant then consider growing your Camellia in a container.

Rain water is ideal for Camellias. Water during dry spells during late summer when flower buds are forming.

Feed Camellias in spring and early summer with acidic fertiliser. And remember, pruning is best done in the spring after flowering.
