Q.Lack of Buds on Camellia

Anonymous added on April 4, 2011 | Answered

I have a thriving 3-4 foot camellia that looks incredibly healthy, dark green shiny leaves and no apparent disease. I re-potted it about two years ago, fed it, etc. It has grown approximately 18 inches but has not produced a single bud. Any tips?

I would add phosphorus to the soil. A lack of phosphorus will cause a lack of blooms.
