during the brief warm spell we have just had my camellia was in the sunshine for a few days after watering it with some rainwater all the leaves turned brown and curled up,can you tell me what is wrong with it.the plant is growing in a pot as we have chalky soil.
thank you



Hello, two points here , firstly the water has it been contaminated anyway, is it from a waterbutt ? Has the camellia been dry for a long period of time prior to watering?, also Vine weevil grubs could be a problem and potted camellias do suffer this problem, so you could check the soil,julien.
