    Hello, I was out today looking at my side garden, and noticed discolouration on a number of my young camellia sasanqua 'Yuletide'. Is this a serious problem? What should I do about it?

    Are you using any kind of fertilizer for them?

    No it was a new bed, with a mixture of sand and compost, I haven't put anything else, like acidic additives around the Camellia.

    Ah, give that a go -- try some acidic fertilizer.
