Friends of the Arboretum Lecture
York Auditorium, Ruby C. McSwain Education Center, JCRA
Tom Johnson, Horticulturist,
"How Not to Grow a Camellia"
Tom Johnsons talk on "How Not to Grow a Camellia" is one of his most popular. He will discuss common things most people do wrong in camellia culture, and hopefully everyone learn how to grow camellias correctly from the lessons learned. Many examples he will discuss come from questions he receives from the "Ask Tom" part of the American Camellia Society's Web site. Tom lives in the middle of the camellia gardens at Massee Lane Gardens in Fort Valley, GA and gets to travel the country helping people grow camellias and promoting the business of the American Camellia Society.
