Before you pot it jetmorgan,
what attention do you give it? Do you water it? Camellias will not flower if they dry out during August. Do you feed it? Do you mulch it?
The leaves look nice and green so soil there suits it.
you bought ericaceous compost......was it ordinary mpc or a john innes type? if you intend to pot it up you will need ericaceous compost, yes (well, it is better to use ericaceous) but ericaceous john innes, a soil based product.
where is your camellia planted? Does it get sun? Is it very shady there? EARLY morning is not good. Mine are in full sun but in good soil and flower well so full sun if watered well.
i would be inclined to mulch and feed it ......??? If it still struggles you can still pot it but it will be much happier in the soil, grow much bigger and flower much better
