When Can I Prune My Camellia?


andy68 added on April 29, 2014 | Answered

I have a large (8'x8') camellia that I need to lightly prune to keep its shape. I have read that I should prune straight after flowering, which is about now for mine, as most of the flowers have dropped and the remaining ones are browning. The problem is, there are already what appear to be buds present next to the flowers. Have I left it too late or can I still prune without compromising the next lot of flowers? Andy

The little buds you see would be leaf buds.
