Camelia - fertilize zone 10 ?-
I'm new to camelias. These were planted about a year ago, have many buds now and the leaf structure looks good. When is the best time to fertilize them?
This is in coastal zone 10 So. Cal. area. When they were planted, they were under shade from an apricot tree. Since then, the tree has fallen and the camelias now find themselves next to a concrete block wall, facing south. So far they aren't showing any signs of shock, but am wondering if they may be too warm when summer comes.
