I grow all my camellias in pots. They flowered well this year but a number of the leaves are now yellowing and have brown spots on them.
What is the cause please and what is the cure?



Flowering shrubs often look tatty with some discoloured leaves shortly after flowering. How long have they been in their current pots? Need a photograph showing the brown areas on the leaves really, there's more than one cause of brown spots, but here's some info on Camellia Leaf Blight - I don't know if it is that without seeing the plant, but you might recognise the description

I would also make sure that you feed regularly. Yellowing of the leaves can be caused by iron and magnesium deficiency. You need to realise that as you are watering regularly, then any feed will quickly be washed away.
