When shall I repot my new bought Camellias?

Gartenfee(z6 Zurich/CH)November 29, 2005

I have bought two Camellias potted in black plastic containers (as used in nurseries), they have lots of buds and I have placed them in my non heated greenhouse, shall I leave them in this small pots until spring and repot then in larger pots(how large?), or shall I do the repotting now?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I will repot then now in a container just 2 cm larger than the plastic one. It's ok for one year until spring 2007.
Give it some food, just after flowering. You can also prune it, always after flowering. Don't forget watering and mulching.

Keep it inside as long as the weather is cold.
