My beautiful camellias, red and pink, which have flowered profusely in their large pots this year, have succumbed to blossom rotemoticonemoticon I have now taken off all the blossoms, mulched, fed and sprayed them with a milk solution as a fungicide - any other ideas?

I inherited a camellia in a pot when I moved to this house. It didn't look particularly healthy but flowered for the first couple of years. This year, however, it didn't flower and the leaves looked really yellow. So I lifted it out of its pot which was half full of rocks! I repotted it in ericaceous compost and watered it well. Still not doing well, though.
Is this the same thing as your camellia rot, Madge?

There was no yellowing of leaves and it was already in ericaceous soil Joanna, so I don't think it was that. Too much sun causes yellowing of leaves - they like shade or partial shade.

Mine is in almost full shade. I wonder what sort of rot I got? emoticon
