Question & Answer

Just I want to know if the Tea plant Camellia sinensis ,called white Tea From: RESERVOIR VIC

This is just a normal Tea Plant and the way tea is processed determines if you have black or white tea. #TeaPlant1114

I was wondering whether you could email me a copy of the tea pruning guide. I was given a paper copy some time ago and have since misplaced it. Regards, David From: SALISBURY QLD

I do not know the reason It died during the summer so despite the care I guess it didn't like Adelaide's 40deg heat

The flowers are beautiful and the tea is a bonus. The plant does not seem to be doing well though with very little growth and browing to the leaf tips. I am not sure this one is going to make it...

Tea Plant (Seedling) 5/10

Jane16's Edible Fruits
Update: 18 days 20hrs

Comments: - When I transplanted it, I accidentally damaged most of the roots. Also, the next 3 days after it was transplanted was 35C plus. It was been watered daily and placed into low sun for 1 day (shade most of the day, maybe 1-2hours of full sun). I then moved it into the bathroom where it has been for the past few days. It's now receiving filtered light for most of the day. It's really struggling right now, the leaves are all droopy. But there looks like there might be some new growth so fingers crossed...

Height 0.3 metres

Qty: 1

Sun/Shade: Full Shade

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Blood and bone, rock dust, 100% organic compost
