APRIL CARE: Prune to control interior growth and plant height, after plant has quit blooming and before new growth begins. Apply an Azalea/Rhododendron/Camellia fertilizer of 16-4-8, or your favorite organic. Follow fertilizer instructions, e.g., for a large plant (6 ft or higher), sprinkle 1 cup of fertilizer at the drip line. Water in the fertilizer after application. Check pH of soil and add necessary chemicals to keep in the 6.0-7.0 range - sulfur to lower pH (more acid) and dolomitic lime to raise it (more alkaline). If scale or other insect problems are observed, spray plants with dormant oil (Volck). A prime time for air-layering. Also a good time to plant new or indoor over-wintered Camellias, after the last frost.
