I planted this camellia in my garden and leaves started becoming yellow,I transplanted back to pot but still it is not recovering.What should I do with this.I have already give feed.




Your soil is probably alkaline which Camellia's do not like. The pot you have it in is far too small. Find a much larger pot and use ericaceous compost.

Thank you Moon,yes I have alkaline soil (very sticky hard clay)but I put ericaceous compost in the soil before planting.I will put in big pot soon.I have just put it 2 days ago.

I agree, it needs ericaceous soil and feed. Iron is quite soluble so the heavy rain has leached it from the soil. The new leaves will come back fine after you do that.
