I would like to move a camelia bush successfully, plenty of leaves but few blossoms. Advice on the movement please. Thank you Oliver



Hi Oliver wait until autumn to move doing so now would seriously stress the shrub

Camellias are quite shallow rooted but may be quite wide at the root ball. They can be successfully moved in autumn. Watch your back! Replant in a sheltered place, they don't mind some shade, but not where the early morning sun can scorch the flowers if they are frosted. Water (rainwater if possible) all through the first year after planting.

If you move it it willnot flower the following year as it will use its energy to reroot.
