Dear Bambi,
  Camellias, eh!?  I just recognized one of my bushes out back as a 
camellia.  I had about 3 white blossoms in October - none since or ever 
before!  It's about waist high...very scrawny looking with only 3 
branches to it.  I was wondering what you might recommend for me to do 
with it?  What kind of fertilizers, plant foods, pruning etc?  It's 
situated in a three sided ell of the house, facing north, but protected 
on all sides but the one facing north.  Any hope for it?
