My Camellia bushes are old and too tall, blocking the window on the side of my home. They are very healthy, producing beautiful flowers every year. When is the best time to prune these giants?

Camellias are best pruned after flowering. Remove dead and weak wood and thin out the center. Camellias can be fairly heavily pruned to get the size/shape you need.
