camelias are far more tolerant of alkaline conditions than azaleas, rhododendrons etc
my soil is neutral and I can grow camelias well.
how alkaline is your soil?
If a camelia is growing well already the signs are good for the others. A spray of sequesterene is advisable but why not try Epsom salts first? Cheap from any chemist and often this is sufficient to address your yellowing leaves issue.
Camelias are also excellent for pots. Use ericaceous john Innes and maintain moisture levels.
What better evergreen than camelias?
