SEPTEMBER CARE: Begin Gibbing early in the month. DO NOT gib more than 4 or 5 bloom buds per plant at a time. Repeat every other week through November. Begin debudding, leaving 1 bud on the terminal end of a branch. If you want to root hardened growth cuttings, September through November is the best time to do it.

HURRICANE FLORENCE CARE: The storm may have blown over recently planted camellias. When it is safe from broken or hanging limbs to go in the garden, bring the trunk back to upright and stake in place. Cover exposed roots with soil, then mulch. Due to root damage, water when the soil dries out and thereafter much like a recent transplant.
