Embracing the Beauty - The Allure of Camellias in the Garden


There's something truly magical about the sight of camellias in full bloom. Whether they're adorning a sheltered garden nook or gracing a formal landscape with their presence, camellias never fail to captivate.

One of the most remarkable aspects is their ability to brighten the garden during the cooler months of the year. While many other plants are dormant or resting, camellias burst into bloom, adding vibrant colour and fragrance to the winter garden. From late fall to early spring, camellias take center stage, providing a welcome reminder that beauty can thrive even in the midst of winter's chill.

While camellias may seem like delicate beauties, they're surprisingly easy to grow with the right care and attention. With their preference for acidic, well-draining soil and partial shade, camellias thrive in a wide range of climates and conditions. Regular watering, mulching, and occasional feeding with a balanced fertilizer will keep them happy and healthy, ensuring bountiful blooms year after year.

Not traditionally used as a cut flower camellias will last for upto 3 weeks in a vase. Cut long stems before all of the buds have opened.
