It’s that time of the year when we are busy going camellia cuttings. Well, we are just about finished actually.
We are holding an demo day for those folk who are interested to see and learn how to do camellia cuttings, cutting grafts, raise seeds et al on the weekend Friday, Saturday and Sunday 18, 19 and 20 January 2019. Aimed towards members and friends of the Queensland Camellia Society, we are also inviting other interested folk – we just ask that you call first so we know when to expect you.
We had this on our FB page and repeat it here for your info:
“It’s camellia cutting time..at Camellia Glen in Palmwoods.
We are holding a cuttings and cutting grafts weekend Fri Sat and Sunday 18, 19 and 20 January 2019 open to all Camellia Society members (and friends).
This is an opportunity for you to learn, practice or just watch the process of taking camellia cuttings and cutting grafts. So if you have a camellia that you want to take cuttings off, come along and have a go. Bring along your cutting material or we can supply selected material from our trees. We will supply pots, medium and hormone. We can show you how to care for your cuttings at home or we can hold your cuttings here in our prop house until the cuttings are struck and ready to pot up.
Come and visit – any time between 8.00am to 4.00pm.
Camellia Glen – 52 McKays Lane Palmwoods
If you are not a QCS member and would like to have a look, you are welcome – just give us a call 54450333
We will probs have some snags for a bbq at lunchtime, tea coffee or byo stuff.
Should be fun
