Confused....should my camelia have flower buds now?...because it has!



Well mine have Andrea, but I live in Cornwall and they start to flower early here, or they could just be the Sasangua variety which flower in Autumn.

Yes camelia flower buds are visible in autumn... in fact a lot of buds are :-)

My daffodils are 6" high at the moment !!!!!!!

Blame it on the weather...I thought they flowered in spring...this particular camelia is in a pot, I have had it for about 4 years and it has never produced one flower. I repotted it recently in a larger pot, maybe it`s rewarding me!

My camellias buds set at this time also flower buds are there on the azalea, happens every year.

this is perfect andrea. they set their buds from august onwards and by late November they should be fat. Mine are growing nicely too.

Don't forget to keep well watered during october/november Andrea because that IS when their buds form for next years flowers (:0)

my camellias and azalea (and indeed the rhododendron) are well ahead with their buds for Spring. Gives you hope beyond winter's strictures, eh?

Agree with all the above,Andrea..the right time of year to have buds..and all the rain we have had this year,is what they need to help form them..keep them well watered if we don't get any for a while..mine have recently had an ericaceous mulch as well..
