SInce our last blog, we have had a change of plans – due to ill health – and as a result, we will not be attending the Beerwah expo BUT we will be here, and the nursery and the garden will be open. Same details – Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 May – 8.00 am to 3.00 pm.
The camellias are looking fantastic and lots of japonicas are just racing into flower. I said last entry that is is amazing what a difference a week makes – well Flower Girl and Dream Girl are flowering a real treat and as these are the first plants that most folks see on entering the property, we are selling out rather quickly, because everyone wants one – or 2.
We continue to be asked for varieties that we either are out of or that we do not have available – we will always do our best to have adequate supplies to meet demand, but as we take propagation some 2 years prior to sale, it is at time difficult to read the future demand. We will also be attempting more reticulata and japonica grafts this season and are excited at this prospect. If anyone has any retic scion stock available around June/July that you are prepared to part with, wrap it, name it (write the name on a leaf) and mail it and we will give it a go.
Happy Gardening – and hope to see some of you on the weekend.
