Fairygirl.....quite correct. I grow Camelias in my neutral soil too....Rhodos, azaleas,,pieris etc go in containers of ericaceous soil. However, althought they tolerate a certain amount of lime they prefer it acid. Did an experiment 2 years ago.....2 Camelias side by side in the ground....one in a pot of ericaceous soil and the other in ericaceous enriched garden soil. They both look fantastic right now but the potted one is bigger.....that could, and prob is, be down to variety.
Saw the Camelias in Lidl....they do look very good but they will need to be hardened off before going outside. Of course
Cant believe today's weather......everyone seemed to be smiling too
Promised a friend I'll check on her garden tomorrow.....rather be in my own tho
