Janice, can you give a brief description as to why you say how "sorry" they look?
are the leaves nice and dark green? Or are they yellow? Maybe they are yellow and green? are they thin and spindly? How big are they? Do they flower? Any flowers now? Why do you say "different wind direction"? Are yours in a very exposed windy position?
They might simply be "hungry". They might be in a dry spot. Are they old,,large bushes?
Can you post a picture?
camelias need decent soil and rich living.
Depending on what you say in reply, a feed of sequestered iron and a generous mulch of ericaceous compost mixed with pelleted chicken manure or dried farm manure and a fertiliser like fish blood and bone will help your camelias grow well. Keep them well watered during the summer too..
Camelias are well worth growing.....I have 5 bushes in full flower right now. Nothing quite like them at this time of year
you can move camelias....now is a good time to do this. Do you have a better spot for them? they are tough plants though so moving is a last resort. Try the feeding options first
