Q. My camellia plants in wooden planters are dropping leaves. What's wrong and what can I do?

Hello. I am a NYBG Member. I have two camellias on my terrace, in very large wooden planter boxes. They have been showing a number of dropped leaves, and leaves turning sort of brown or spotted. I thought it was over watering, so I lightened up quite a bit. Now there is something new-a large branch has curly leaves and looks like it is shriviling up. What should I do? I can't see any parisites by eye.



Not sure what it may be, but here is one possibility: The weather has been humid and wet, good circulation may be needed. Let me know if this is it described below: 


Hope this helps.
