You can fertilize now and then again in the spring. Sometimes young camellias will produce more flower buds than they are able to open and will subsequently drop lots of unopened buds. This is nothing to be alarmed about; as it matures and stores energy in the roots, it will be able to open nearly all the flower buds it sets.

Best wishes with your camellia!
