moving camelias

I have 2 camelias north facing side of my garden. I would like to move them, when is the right time to do this, facing which way. Neither of them has flowered this year.



Hi Carol right to move as North facing means lots of shade esp in early months of year when camellias like some available light. Avoid east facing as ealy morning sun will damage blooms if frosted over-night,like to thaw gently.West and south best remember your ericaceous compost. May be a little late to settle roots and produce flower buds for next year but not flowering where it is so cant hurt moving now.
