Camellia Nursery and Garden Open Days – an update

Our camellia season is in full swing – many sasanquas are still in full flower and more and more japonicas are flowering each day. We have had a busy few weeks so far with visits from camellia lovers – both on our open days and others calling to come in at other times.

So many people express surprise at the number of camellias (and other plants and trees) in our garden and the number of varieties that we have available in the nursery. Although we are not growing nearly as many plants or varieties these days, it is still more than you can see anywhere else – certainly in SE Queensland.

    We would like to purchase a few Sesanqua Camelias for our garden. Whilst they are in flower is a good time to select them. We notice that you are open on Saturday 15th June. Please can you tell us your opening hours and where do we find you?
    Thank you.
    Keith and Jan. Can you please call us on 0412543272

  2. Yes, we have been open today. It’s now 9.00pm – we don’t get to emails and social media every day, sorry. All details are on our website – address, phone etc. Sorry that you have not found details there. I won’t call now and we are not open Sunday and Monday. Other times we are available by arrangement – call 54450333.
    We think you might have found us today anyway. Cheers. Darryl and Steph
