Pruning of camellia

Posted: 22/09/2016 at 23:53

Makes sense jennifer.  


don't prune to a flat top...that's just taking the shears to it.  As I said, prune every stem but follow a reasonable shape

Same but more convenient to use

Look out for named varieties too GD   Your climate is mild enough as it is here for them to survive winter.   They have different foliage smells...liquorice, mint, lemon and more.  Flowers inc blue, tangerine, yellow, pink and orange......more tempted?

Bee friendly?  Butterfly friendly?  Slug unfriendly?  Go for agastaches GD.  The humming bird plant so called for a very good reason.  My agastaches have bees swarming all over them 


both rigida and homestead purple will grow well in pots....Rigida needing more moisture

Evergreen 4 in 1

Agree with Dove.   I would not use anything at all now.  Let the winter do what it does and apply 4 in 1 In spring.  


You could improve the appearance of the lawn temporarily but winter takes its toll on grass so save yourself time and money and wait for a few months when treatment will be effective all spring and summer 

Plant suggestions please!
