Acid loving plants require a higher potassium to nitrogen ratio which plays a crucial role in enhancing flower development. They also need boosted levels of iron and magnesium to help maintain healthy green foliage, aiding in preventing the yellowing leaves which are often seen in late winter and early spring.
Spring tip: After being fabulous show-offs (some well into spring) camellias now require a good tidy up. When flowering has finished, dead-head and apply Kahoona around the drip zone to encourage the new season’s growth. If planted in a pot, sprinkle Kahoona around the outer edge. Avoid the foliage and water in well.
About Kahoona – an organic based, chemically boosted fertiliser, Kahoona has been specifically developed to enhance the growth and flower development of acid loving plants such as camellias, gardenias, azaleas, rhododendrons and fuchsias. The higher potassium to nitrogen ratio within Kahoona plays a crucial role in enhancing flower development, whilst the boosted levels of iron and magnesium help maintain healthy green foliage.
Following successful trials, Kahoona has been endorsed by Camellias South Australia, the Australian Rhododendron Society (SA Branch), the Camellia Society of WA, Camellias WA, Camellias Illawarra and the NSW Camellia Research Society.
