Replanting camellia

I have a camillia in a pot for about 4 years and nothing much has happened. The odd flower here and there. I am thinking of replanting out of the pot and into the garden. Good idea or not? foxfield18, Dublin, Co Dublin Posted: 02/03/2017

Camellias need a lot of attention to watering and feeding to do well in a pot, but can be planted into the open ground. Being in Dublin, the soil is limy and you will have to dig in several buckets of leaf mound or similar and apply a mulch of same every couple of years to reduce the lime to neutral.
