Thats a lovely sight Cmsue,all growing well too..Your Camellia looks very healthy,lots of buds.It should be fine,as long as you keep it out of the morning sun,as the buds can get scorched and drop,if they have had frost on them..but you will probably know that already..Is it a pink or a red one?

Exciting isn't it! I had a Camelia in a pot, it got a weevel, I was so upset. Good luck with yours, she looks lovely and healthy.

Nice bulbs you have. Camelias are easy to grow. I had a big one in my previous garden. It was always full of flowers every year.

It's a little worm you can get when Camelias are in a pot!!

The camelia is looking good as are the bulbs, its the only plant I have in my front garden , a camelia, and yes plenty of water over the summer, even though its not flowering.
