Q Why are some camel­lia leaves dis­coloured?

Garden Answers (UK) - - Gourmet Grower - TONY GLOVER, BY EMAIL

AAn east­fac­ing spot is not the best for camel­lias – when buds be­come frosted the early morn­ing sun can dam­age the flow­ers. How­ever, this leaf dis­coloura­tion is prob­a­bly caused by a wa­ter­ing prob­lem or a lack of nu­tri­ents. Make sure the soil is moist but never wa­ter­logged and ap­ply a feed rich in trace el­e­ments, such as seaweed fer­tiliser, in spring. Also bear in mind these could just be dy­ing older leaves.
