Can I grow tea plants myself?

As its botanical name suggests, the tea plant is a variety of camellia, and like other camellias it can be cultivated in a home garden. It is not well suited to indoor cultivation, though. It grows best outdoors in climates like its native ones: temperate, with warm summers and cool (not cold) winters

Large nurseries, particularly those that specialize in camellias, may be able to provide interested gardeners with tea plants ready for home growing.
