Of course, they do not flower yet.  December/Feb is  their time 

Wouldnt move so often though Irene  You  said the larger plant has lots of foliage and no buds ......maybe too much feeding.  


Need help identifying (and saving) this small plant

And they root easily.  Consider training them as cordons too.  Oblique cordons or,double cordons produce excellent large fruit with easy access.  I did this in my early days and had 20 or more cordons on wires on a wall.

I think a late  summer application is enough though.  Spring is prob unnecessary

Can I move these without doing the dastidly deed happening

Definite no to the hibiscus.  Camelia though may be ok.  How big is it?  How many years has it been in place?  Camelias usually have compact root systems and I have moved several successfully.  

Camelia does not need acid soil in my opinion....neutral to acid is a good rootball, a generous hole with compost added and well watered in.

The flowers just seem too big for the plants.  Even when I bought them.......they were very cheap......I thought it was a rash moment.  They didn't last too long for me......they went onto the composf heap
