Q.My Camellia Has Lost All Its Leaves

Anonymous added on January 13, 2014 | Answered

I have had my camellias for 3 months and keep them in pots in the garden. They used to be in semi shade but I noticed the leaves turning yellow and moved them to a more sunny part of the garden. One of my camellias has now lost all its leaves and the other one still has yellowing of the leaves and they are also dropping. I used camellia soil and fertiliser when repotting after I first bought them, and they have only been replanted into bigger pots. I’m not sure what to do now as all the information online seems to conflict with one another. Also, I live in Western Australia and I’m not sure what websites are referring to what weather conditions. I would really apreciate some advice, as I love my plants but I’m still very inexperienced when it comes to gardening!

Yellowing leaves is an indication of plant stress, such as overwatering or pests. I would check the soil in your pots to make sure that it's not too moist. Also, check for any insect pests.
