My camellia japonica plant didn't do well over the winter and is loaded with dry brown leaves and very few green ones. There are only 2 flowers and I usually have many, many more. Should I trim it back or leave it alone? Also, should it be fertilized and with what? Thanks so much for your help....I am really disappointed in what is usually a beautiful bush this time of year!
