I grow mine in Eracsius compost and give them rainwater same as azaleas . But they can easily dry out . Early days I tried with quite a few differant ones and lost them . The above way is the only way I seem to be keeping them . I have them in the same flower bed as Camelia's and Azalea's.
Your doing well with your Camelia if your using tap water .
You cant seem to get Peat these days but isnt that what heather on the moor's grows in , and that spreads well ?
