Q.Camellias, rhododendrons and azaleas

Anonymous added on September 12, 2015 | Answered

I have two lovely camellias. I bought them about five years ago from Cornwall. One is 2 ft high and the other is 22 inches high, so they haven’t grown very high in those 5 years. They are in pots sized 17 inches wide 14 inches tall. I want to transplant them into larger pots, 2 ft wide 18 inches tall. Would I be doing the wrong thing, and also how do I look after them properly and get them to grow nicely? Last year’s frost knocked them back a bit, but they don’t like being in the house, so this year I am planning on buying a greenhouse. I also have three Rhododendrons, but my azalea didn’t properly survive the frost. What can I do for them this year to keep them safe? I get very upset if I lose one of my plants, as I think of them as family.
