|I have a camelia that has been overwatered and I want to re-plant it before it dies. What are the best soil conditions for camelias? Is it better to have acidic or alkaline soil?

|Camellias prefer slightly acidic soil, which is what your soil conditions should be there in Bellingham. Areas with high rainfall tend to have acidic soils; areas with low rainfall tend to have alkaline soils. Just plant your camellia in well draining native soil and it should be quite happy. Best wishes with your camellia!
