Today, I received my project–researching and writing an article about the featured plant for the Spring Plant Sale. This year, the plant is camellias, and the article will appear in the newsletter that gets sent out to members!
Some of the notes that I took today about camellias:
- Camellias need a planting site with well-drained soil.
- Avoid planting them where shade trees’ shallow root systems will compete for nutrients/water
- generally 2 types of camellias–spring and fall flowering
I have a list of species/hybrids that I’ll be gathering information about to provide some descriptions to the members—it’s going to be an enjoyable task!
