Shirley, does your pot have drainage holes?

its good to buy a camelia with at least a flower on it...you know then the colour.

dont over water it. M

I would prune it back a little to encourage it to bush out

Kitty, mine are later too.  Wet soil is cold soil.  The slightly warmer weather, esp overnight, is now kicking in.  You will soon see signs of growth

Shirley, was your plant inside or out when you bought it?  Its not just frost that damages plants.... Shock of moving, of being potted of being in a different environment, etc.

buds and flowers are discarded before anything else but no problem.  Your plant will now concentrate on growth........(I would have removed buds and flowers anyway )
