Should I add a tablespoon of lime to my soil when planting a camellia? or more? or none? I won one at a garden club. They told me they thought it is a Vernalis variety but couldn't read the label. I am thinking about planting it in a large pot temporarily. It is root bound now and not looking great. I will add black cow or compost to the potting soil (which is better). It has bare tips which are not dead. I want to shape it but think I should wait until Spring?? What type of fertilizer is best for the homeowner camellia garden .. one camellia plant. Tried to upload a picture but don't think it worked. Any ideas/suggestions you have to make this a beautiful plant will be appreciated.
