Hi I have a camilia plant (flowers with big pink blooms and has dark green shiny leaves) which is dying and i am not sure how to revive it. It is in a planter box which measures about 1ft in diameter. I have fed it and added compost but still no joy - can anyone tell me what has happened it and what to do to revive it please.



Do you keep it well watered? Have you checked that it's not potbound - a 1ft pot doesn't sound very big considering how big camelias get. Is it in ericaecous compost?

It is very possible that the compost in the pot was frozen for a long period last November before your Camelia became dormant. This has killed it. We took one of ours out on Saturday.
