Established in 1937, our members continue on with the tradition of fostering the education of camellia care, propagation and exhibition for generations.
On the third Tuesday of the month, our Club meetings offer speakers and demonstrations with many opportunities for hands on experiences. The 2018-2019 Camellia season begins in September and goes through April with programs on gibbing, air-layering, grafting, companion plants and bonsai camellias. We are now in the heart of 2019 Camellia season with many Club events. In January 2019 we have a field trip to the Tallahassee Camellia Show with a tour of Maclay Gardens and Dorothy B. Oven Park, Langley YMCA grafting demonstration and plant sale, as well as a visit to Agricola, MS for an in-depth grafting experience. In February we host a UWF Camellia Garden Tour and plant sale, then finish the season with a Community Camellia Show for Novice Gardeners and our Annual Banquet.
Check out our calendar to see all of our other community events, and join us the third Tuesday of the month at the Garden Center, located at 1850 N 9th Avenue in Pensacola, Florida. Social and refreshments begin at 6:30 pm followed by the program at 7:00 pm.
