I have had a camellia in a large pot for several years and although it looks healthy it has never flowered. Is the problem the fact that it is in a pot? Any advice would be welcomed.



Being in a pot is not at all a problem so long as you keep the camellia well-watered especially when it is forming flower buds in summer.
If it's been in the pot for a while it might benefit from a feed - slow release camellia/rhododendron/azalea feed now and again in June/July OR use specialist liquid feed such as Trehane Camellia Focus exactly as the instructions on the bottle.
Do you know which variety of camellia you have?

Many thanks for prompt reply. There doesn't appear to be a variety on original note but it flowers May/June.
