a garden update. camellias

last year i was inspired by our neighbor’s beautiful blooming camellia bushes to get some of our own

i bought the first bush while we were living in the blue house

we had one camellia that bloomed

while we were already living in this house (i think), one day i found myself at lowe’s and saw a camellia bush for sale fully loaded with buds

for obvious reasons i purchased it

both camellia bushes have been loaded with buds

for months

one of them for a year now actually

but no camellias

needless to say i am slightly disappointed with our bushes and slightly envious of our neighbor’s bushes that are thriving

maybe i need to plant ours in the ground?

any camellia experts out there?

please help
