THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT
Sidney Frazier, Master Gardener & VP of Horticulture, has dedicated over 46 years to overseeing the care of the oldest landscaped gardens in America at Middleton Place. This is the time of year when camellias take center stage, providing vibrant color in cold winter months. The camellias at Middleton Place are special because they are some of the oldest in America, first planted on Henry Middleton’s parterre in the late 18th century.
Sidney, dubbed “The King of Camellias,” will lead this lively workshop, covering several aspects of the camellia plant, from its origins in Asia and its various forms to care and maintenance. Expect expert advice in planting, water, pruning, fertilizing, propagating, and disease identification and eradication.
Tickets for the special Camellia Workshop are $5/person in addition to general admission and advanced purchase is required. Camellia Workshop tickets are non-refundable.
Middleton Place Foundation members receive free General Admission; however, members will be required to purchase $5 Camellia Workshop tickets in advance.
Proceeds from the Camellia Workshop will help preserve and sustain the historic camellias at Middleton Place National Historic Landmark. Thank you for your support.
