Of course Camellia cultivars are now readily available from most plant retailers and despite the relatively high prices they are surprisingly easy to look after. Regarding pruning, other than deadheading old flowers there is little to do other than removing straggly growth. Be aware that the flower buds are formed on the previous years new growth from late summer onwards so indiscriminate pruning in the autumn or early spring will result in a distinct lack of blooms for the coming year.

Young plants should never require anymore than a light cutting back of the previous years growth to encourage the side shoots to grow. Even then this is only really necessary with straggly plants. Take last years new growth and reduce this in length by about a third to a half. Always cutting back to just above a leaf.
