Camellia - I have a Camellia growing well however when buds come up they seem to brown and die off

Camellia - has shiny leaves and grows quite well (I would have thought signs of health) however I cannot get to flower from buds. Do not know much about Camellias - need cutting back, fertiliser how often what kind - repot? What sort of potting mix best?
Thank you
