Begin Camellia Feedings
The first of three annual feedings for camellias is March. An easy way to remember the schedule is to feed around St. Patrick's Day, Memorial Day and July 4. For the first feeding, mix blood meal with cottonseed meal at a ratio of one part blood meal to four parts cottonseed. It is also recommended to add chelated iron at this time. A pre-mixed camellia/azalea fertilizer also can be used.
