Some years ago I had managed to grow a nice batch of Shortia seedlings. Sadly all of them died the summer I planted them out in the garden. Even in my oceanic climate the summer was to dry without extra watering (I usually never water in summer) so all the plants desiccated before I noticed. So at least as newplanted they need to be constantly moist.

I want to thank all who replied.  The suggestions tended to confirm what I had begun to guess after killing all but 2 of a large number of seedlings.  The comment about planting in a rotten log seems to hold a clue.
