Pruning Large Camellia

m_durbridge added on March 17, 2015 | Answered

My husband has rescued a large camellia. We have planted it. Will it die if we prune it while it's in bud? It's just a bit too big for the part of our garden we have planted it in!

Ideally, a camellia should be pruned after it has stopped blooming (May-June). No harm will come to the plant if you prune it at other times, but it may remove some of the blossom buds for next year.
