Camellia not flowering
Your camellia will need to be planted in ericaceous soil as they prefer acid conditions.
It will require plenty if water during dry spells all year round, but especially when the flower buds are forming. Always water with rain water as they do not like the hardness of tap water.
It sounds as though your plant is situated well as they do not like sunshine first thing in the morning.
Feed your plant with an ericaceous feed up until the end of July.
In the winter, cover you plant with a fleece jacket as sharp frosts can cause the flower buds to drop.
Hopefully with a little attention you will be rewarded with a stunning display of flowers.
