CAMELLIA PROPAGATION MEETING AND TOUR AT JIM SMELLEY'S GREENHOUSES

I am frequently asked where to buy camellias like the beautiful ones that on display at camellia shows.  My answer is that you probably can't.  Local nurseries do not carry them.  Some are available by mail order but shipping costs make them very expensive.  The best solution is to join a camellia club and learn how to propagate camellias.  Members are willing to assist and provide the plant material.
