The sasanquas are blooming and so let’s have some fun! Enjoy an afternoon of fun in a beautiful setting.
Wish you knew the name of your favorite camellia? Bring a bloom or blooms and we will have a mini camellia exhibit. Do you have extra camellias or companion plants you would like to swap for someone else’s favorite – bring those too.
Each fall we gather together to catch up on summer activities, plans in the garden, good food and a chance to share/swap plants we all love. All that is required is YOU! But if you want to share your favorite sauvignon, salad, saucy chicken bites, sugar cookies, potted sasanqua, or ?? – you get the idea.
