OCTOBER CARE: Continue gibbing early in the month. Check airlayers. They can usually be taken off of the mother plant by now. Put them in small pots with an appropriate growing medium (no fertilizer) and leave them in pots for 1 year. Fertilize your landscape plants, if desired for root health, with 0-0-22 in October through December. Now is the best time to plant new Camellias.

HURRICANE FLORENCE CARE: For blown over camellias, when it is safe to go in the garden, bring the trunk back to upright and stake in place. Cover exposed roots with soil, then mulch. Keep soil moist.
