|I recently brought a Camellia plant from Tallahassee, florida. Can I get it to grow in South florida. I bought peat moss. How moist do I have to keep the soil, I usually use mulch around the plants since the area is quite sandy. I don't have a lot of shade around the home and the plant was suggested to be about five (5) years old. I would appreciate any advice. Thanks.|
It should be able to make it in your area if you can mix 6 inches of peat moss deeply into the soil and plant the camellia in a bright shade location. Try to find a spot with at least afternoon shade. Keep the soil moist and fertilize periodically with a plant food for acid loving plants.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
