But taken care of with the young plants young plants are more sensible and although frosts resist, these can affect the flowers and pimpollos. He would be good plantar them against a wall or shrub, protecting the roots with leaves or I graze dry, sawdust, etc. Flowering: here two factors take part: light and temperature. For the quality and stability of the flowers, a period of autumn-winter rest of at least four weeks is necessary, during which the temperatures would have to oscillate between 0 to 10C. For it our climate is ideal. The ground: it needs acid, rich earth in humus, with pine needles, disturbs (little), heavy sand. The calcareous lands as ours they are bad for these plants, by such reason we must add to the Earth aluminum or iron sulphate.
To use little installment and that contains little nitrogen. Every year to add humus upon the base. Fertilization: The basic rule is to fertilize only at the time of growth, that is after the flowering, and in very prudent form. Not to use fertilizers long play the best thing is to fertilize with lombricompuesto or compost. Location: safe from the great trees that protect of the ardent sun and the wind. The ground must be humid (not flooded) and to water with rainwater.
If we cannot collect it, we joined common water we added a handful to him of crowd we left and it all night. We used soon it, and at the height of summer we dampen the foliage at dusk. If the waters are hard, we can improve them with wine vinegar (200 cc by each 10 liters) . Vegetative development of the Camellias In their development four stages of growth can be appreciated at least. first it begins in the spring after the winter rest and flowering, in this period of growth is where it needs a good contribution water, but without flooding the ground, to avoid sanitary problems.
