poor camellia

United Kingdom Gb

please please can someone help, my beloved camellia is dying the leaves are turning yellow and then brown and some of them have started to turn brown on the edges with brown and redish spots that are growing from the leaf edge inwards, this morning i looked and found white larvae type things on a few leaves but not on all of them. i am so upset my poor camellia any advice would be very good thanks



Check round the soil for vine weevil.
Has the soil become very hard round your shrub?. The red spots may be nail fungus.
Has it been waterlogged?. Fork round the soil, spray with both fungicide and pesticide.
Dress the root area with erica - compost (dry), and dress the soil with sulphate of potash early spring.
