Basic Need

temperatures much lower than ours. But beware of young plants young plants are more sensitive and even though resist frost, these can affect the flowers and buds. It would be good to plant them against a wall or shrub, protecting the roots with leaves or grass dry, sawdust, etc. Flowering: here depends on two factors: temperature and light. For the quality and stability of flowers, need a rest period autumn of at least four weeks, during which the temperatures should range between 0 to 10 C. Our climate is ideal for this purpose.

Soil: need Earth acid, rich in humus, with pine needles, peat (little), coarse sand. The land as ours are bad for these plants, calcareous therefore must add to Earth iron or aluminum sulfate. Use little fertilizer and containing little nitrogen. Each year add humus on top of the base. Fertilization: The basic rule is to fertilize only in the growing season, or after the flowering, and in a very prudent way. Do not use long-lasting fertilizer best is fertilizing with compost or worms…

Location: away from large trees to protect them from the blazing sun and wind. The soil must be moist (not waterlogged) and watering with rainwater. If not we can collect it, we got plain water add you a handful of peat and leave it overnight. Then we use it, and in midsummer wet foliage late in the afternoon. If the waters are harsh, we can improve them with wine vinegar (200 cc per 10 litres).Vegetative development of the camellias in its development at least four stages of growth can be seen. The first begins in the spring after the winter break and flowering, in this period of growth is where you need a good supply of water, but pooling the soil, to prevent health problems. The second is the stage of formation of the saplings, which begins toward the end of the summer.
