Hi, yes, I was looking at earlier and come to the same conclusion.

not sure whether to bin them or hope the birds get them.   I'm in a good wildlife area so apathy seems to work for pests.  But don't want them overwintering.

i also found a dagger grey moth caterpillar today.  Fascinating!

It's possible that the roots aren't as well developed on the one, so it's coping less well with the sun.

If you cut a root in half will it kill it?

And generally, the plants you like are the ones that get upset, and the weeds are the ones that multiply....

Reviving a Camelia

Oh well done.  Hoping it does well for you.  post any developments!

i looked it up and greenhills nursery says it's between fully hardy and frost tender - min7 to 10C.  So get the bubble wrap ready if we have a cold one

Reviving a Camelia

I have two in pots.  One is hardy. The other is a little tender but only to the extent of bud damage rather than loss of plant. So it depends on what camellia it is.  Although I think most are fairly hardy - particularly if it's already survive with neglect. If concerned give some shelter (eg near house wall) and bubble wrap the pot if gets really cold.  Agree re avoiding early morning sun if can - will damage the buds if they defrost too quickly.  Once it's got some leaves back and maybe a flower (maybe too late for this years buds tho) then might be able to identify.
