I agree with John, above. They like good drainage and do not seem to mind if soil is acid or not. Mine are in a bed I specifically made friendly to my, then, baby camelia. Janet has some in a bed with slightly alkaline soil, based on what else is there! I'd put'em where you want'em and only move them if they don't like it or if you need to spread out an overgrowth of them! Oh, ours are no where near out yet, I don't think the leaves are even showing!
