Poorly Camellia

jorosieholtAugust 10, 2013

Hello. I am new to gardening so please be patient with me! I have this camellia tree which was in my front garden. It is absolutely beautiful but I wanted it moved to my back garden. I consulted a qualified RHS gardener who said it would be okay but might not bloom next year. I had it moved but the buds and leaves have all gone brown but it is growing. Please could someone give me some tips about pruning it back so the tree would bloom again? I have tried to, but I am unsure how much I should prune. Thank you.

Leave it be -- that is no cutting/pruning until it establishes its root system. May need several years.

Feel free to remove any dead branches. I would wait until early Spring to do that though.
