The leaves on my camelia are turning yellow. It's planted in ericaceous compost and been fed with a slow release camelia fertiliser. Could anyone tell me what it's short of please.

My dahlia tubers are not doing anything

Mother's Day gift from my son was M & S dahlia in a large terracotta pot complete with  (rather strange) compost. Planted according to instructions, which said nothing about unseated greenhouses, after frosts finished but nothing coming up yet. What a shame if it doesn't do anything.

I've no idea what variety it is. It's quite small, I think it came from Marks and Spencer! I'll try it in a tub in the garden after flowering as you suggest and hope for the best. Thanks.

My son bought me a lovely hydrangea in a small pot for Mother's day. It was sold as a pot plant. Am I right in thinking I could plant it outside, or would it have been forced or something to flower at this time and so be unsuitable for the garden. Does anyone know?

Hello Verdun. It's a camelia bonomiana and I'd say it's in only partial shade and east facing. I can't see any buds at all. I think I'll move it to another area of the garden and try for next year.

I don't think anything dried out last year!! Seriously, I've been really careful with this plant and it's had special camelia feed. Don't know where I've gone wrong.

Thanks for your comments. Pretty sure I haven't over fed it though and I read they don't need pruning.It's about 2 -3 feet high.
