In forum: Pests, diseases and invasive biosecurity risks

Hi!
Is that a camellia bush? They look like cushion scale or cottony camellia scale. Despite their name, they also feed on holly, euonymus, star jasmine, and rhododendron. Though annoying, and their secretions can attract sooty mould (a fungus), they don't usually affect the vigour of the plant. You can spray them off with water or wipe them off. If heavily infested, you can used an insecticide but this is not recommended when a plant is in flower as the insecticide might kill off bees and other beneficial insects.
Best of luck,
Kathy N

Looks more like an azalea to me. Yes you can tidy up the lopsided bit but they are slow growers. Buds for next years flowers form July Aug etc so water well at that time.

Lopsided Camellia

Comment from Jeremy Lea

In forum: General

Hi all,
I have a lovely Camellia that has just finished flowering, however for reasons best known to itself it has all gone lopsided.

Can anyone please help me correct it? (pruning perhaps? )

Thanks in anticipation

By the way, I've also put this in an alternative forum, apologies for the duplication

watering could also be the issue
If Camellias don't get enough water during late summer when buds are forming - then you won't get flowers next spring

I also think this plant may be a camellia; it appears to have some nutrient deficiencies. The plant us very close to the house wall and thus may also be very dry in this pot, especially as it's hardly rained in past few weeks!

Perhaps repot in ericaeous soil, when flowering over, in slightly larger (suggest plastic pot) as terracotta seems to dry out too quickly when plant camellias are in bloom!

Re: Squirrel eat Camellia buds

Message from John Bates

In forum: Abelia chinensis

No come across that - but not surprised either
I'm guessing you have oak tree near you and if like the ones by me they didn't produce many acorns last Autumn (which is a natural thing for the number to vary significantly)then I guess they are short of food and on survival mode.

Leaves round enough to be a camellia, pour your tea leaves on the soil and see if it rewards you with some whopping flowers in feb/march

does it have a peeling bark, if it does it could be an arbutus, it does not look like a camellia, look for the flowers, it is in the heath family.

Re: Camellia Lady Campbell

Message from Kathy C

In forum: Container gardening

Hi, Nishma,
There are a number of reasons why new leaves turn brown. My initial thoughts are sun scorch, wind scorch, or too little water. Could it be any of these? Also, is it possible to post a photo?
