I have a camellia with 5 or 6 years,but have no buds or flowers on it this year or last, had flowers on it for other years,was wondering what problem is and would I move it to another part of garden.

When a shrub flowers for a few years and then stops, it is likely that some of its growing conditions have changed … often too dry or too shaded.

Camellia likes well-drained acidic soil with plenty of humus in a bright spot with some shade from the sun for part of the day. If these conditions can be matched elsewhere in the garden, lift and move the plant in March or early April or October.
