Q.Camellia losing leaves

Zone London | Eskild added on March 13, 2019 | Answered

Leaves look healthy not brown or yellow. It started bloom few weeks ago and at the same time started losing leaves. Is it natural? Or do I need to do something? Another camellia with flowers is normal. But it started blooming a bit later. Do I expect the same thing?

I bought two camellias at the same time

Thanks. Huge help.

Did they come in those pots, or did they get re-planted? This usually happens when there is too much nitrogen available in the soil. You may want to halt feeding for quite awhile, or if you used a very nutrient rich soil or compost, then you may want to use a lighter soil.
