Fertilization Camellia japonica
Shrubs develop new shoots and prepare their flowers during the spring period, therefore we must remember, by the end of the winter, to give it a good dose of humus or mature manure, or granular slow release fertilizer, to be added to the soil at the foot of the plant. During the spring we can choose a fertilizer rich in nitrogen and potassium, to mix with the irrigating water, every 20-25 days.

Watering Camellia japonicaTenere Umido
During this period of the year the the Camellia japonica needs regular watering, which should be done letting the soil dry between one watering and the other; letís irrigate every 2-3 weeks with about 1-2 buckets of water . If we want to grow these plants in a vase, we should water them a bit more often, compared to plants cultivated in the ground; Every 2-3 years we should renew the substratum in the vase, or enrich with organic amender.

Exposure Camellia japonicaPosizione mezza ombra
To prevent damage caused by the cold temperatures, during the months with definately harsh minimum temperatures, we can protect the shrubs by covering the soil around the stem with straw or dry leaves. It is advisable to position this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day.The the Camellia japonica should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.

Treatments Camellia japonica
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.

Soil Camellia japonica
Letís grow the the Camellia japonica in a specific soil for acidophilic plants, which slightly withholds moisture.
