Transplanting and air layering 12-15 foot camelias
A couple of years ago we bought and old home built around 1927 which has many huge Camelia's. There are about a half dozen overgrown ones at the front perimeter of the house which almost reach the second story windows. They are in the wrong place in poor condition full of scale etc.
Each winter they produce so many blooms the limbs can't support the weight. I have been advised by a garden person to just "rip them out". I feel they were here long before I was and would really like to save them. Any advice on how to transplant them would be greatly appreciated and how to air layer and when. Our property is almost 2 acres with lots of places to move them to. Thanks
