Description Q & A Goes Well With Description

Almost everyone drinks tea without really thinking about it, not realising that the leaves themselves are actually from a well known garden plant, the Camellia. Camellia sinensis var sinensis originates from China where it naturally grows on moist mountain slopes in fertile acidic soils.

In the U.K. we can grow tea plants in the more sheltered parts of the country either planted in the ground or kept in a container. Like all Camellia plants they are best grown in fertile free draining acidic soils away from cold winds.

Yes you can harvest the leaves to make a refreshing cup of tea. Tea plants are now grown commercially in plantations in Cornwall and in Scotland.

A great plant for the collector....tea drinker!
