Camelia issue : Now, i know next to nothing about gardening but i'm sure one of you will know if i'm doing anything wrong.
Five years ago i spent £95 on a 6 foot camelia(just couldn't wait for it to grow). At point of purchase it had one red flower and after i planted it in my garden it promptly died, never to flower again. During the next few years my knowledge of plants, soil types etc. increased and i soon realised that i have akaline soil! Ayway the tree nearly was given up on and then after putting it in a pot with lots of erocasous compost, wonder of wonders it started to bud profously! My question now is -why are the leaves still looking all yellow and brown, even though it is covered in buds??. Is this just lack of water or does it need some kind of food - if so -what do you recomend?
To help you a photo is included.
