Non-flowering Camelia


By Viviane

I have 3 Camelias in my garden. 2 are about to burst into flower, but the third has no buds at all although the leaves look very healthy. It is not old. Can anyone help?



Are they in a shady position and have you fed them? It could simply be that the third one is a different cultivar and takes more time to flower. I hope it is a mass of colour next year for you!

Thanks for your reply. No I haven't fed any of them and the other 2 are positively bursting with buds. It is in a slightly shadier spot, so maybe I'll have to wait and see what happens next year. Love your dog. We used to have a lab but now we just have 2 cats and from time to time my daughter's labradoodle (small horse!)
