I’ve two camellias, side by side, each in a separate pot. The white one is doing great. The pink one has lots of buds but they are turning brown and dropping off before opening. Is there anything I can do? Many thanks. In hope. Breffnie

Frost is the likely cause, although this should affect the white one as well. It might be that the pink one dried out in the pot, which can cause buds to fall. If they are not long in pots, the pink one might have got a touch of frost before you got it.

Keep them watered and feed each month from April to September.
