Background

Camellias are found in eastern and southern Asia, from the Himalayas east to Japan and Indonesia. They need an acidic soil – ericaceous, or lime-free compost.

Where I planted

Currently I have replanted in a larger pot to the one shown.

More Info

Further info here suggests to avoid using tap water (as contains too much lime) and instead to use rain water (i.e. from Water Butt) : Gardeners World.
