Autumn is Camellia and Gardenia season.
The garden centre gave me one very good tip about growing Camellias:
Do not plant it out into a big pot straight away. Go up to a slightly larger pot than what it came in. The roots like to feel a little more compact as it grows which is what makes Camellias such a great potted plant. So slowly does it, and chocking up the bricks inside underneath until it is ready for the planting out in future.
- 15cm potted Camellia (height 60cm) $16.95
