The camellia season is approaching fast – we have a few flowers on early sasanquas like Mikuni Ko, Chojiguruma, Bonanza, Sparkling Burgundy – spot flowers for sure but it is nice to see the colour coming.
We plan to have a number of ‘open days’ again this season where folk can visit, wander our garden, check out the 400 or so Camellias in our garden – and perhaps buy one or two for yours.
As usual, we are available by appointment at other times – we just ask that you call in advance to make a suitable time.
We will also have a number of camellia shows, garden club events etc. that we need to schedule around.
So – this is the 2019 plan so far:

This will be all of our planned Open Days for this season. As usual, we will continue to be open at arrangement.
There are lots to do in the garden at the moment – the mowing, weeding and mulching never seem to finish. But we do get to walk the garden and see the progress of the camellias – the flower buds that are just bursting to pop into colour.
Come visit us – wander our garden. See our camellias in flower – buy some for yours!
