Commonly Asked Questions

When does Volunteer Flower?

Sasanqua Volunteer Camellias flower during the Winter and Spring months. Deadheading camellias is optional and mainly done for cosmetic reasons. If you enjoy the appearance of a clean and tidy plant, you can remove spent flowers, but it’s not essential for the health or future blooming of the camellia.

 

How far apart do I plant them for a screening hedge?

Plant these Camellias around 1.2-1.5m apart for a screening hedge. Apply a layer of mulch around the base of the plants to help retain moisture, suppress weeds, and maintain a consistent soil temperature. Understand that it may take some time for the camellias to grow and fill in the hedge. Be patient, and as the plants mature, they will create a dense and attractive hedge.

 

When should I fertalise my camellias?

The best time to fertilize camellias is in late winter or early spring, just before the growing season begins. Fertilizing at this time provides nutrients to support new growth and flower development. It’s essential to use a balanced fertilizer specifically formulated for acid-loving plants, as camellias prefer acidic soil. Additionally, follow the recommended dosage on the fertilizer package to avoid over-fertilizing, which can harm the plants.
