The UF/IFAS Extension Alachua County Office is pleased to announce the following Environmental and Community Horticulture Programs for November 2019. These programs are being offered by Dr. Taylor Clem, Environmental and Community Horticulture Agent, at the UF/IFAS Extension Alachua County Office (2800 N.E. 39th Avenue, Gainesville) unless otherwise indicated.
Camellias for Your Garden – November 4, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Since their introduction, camellias have enthralled western gardeners. Camellias have a certain elegance that’s all their own, with handsome glossy foliage and exquisitely sculptured flowers. Selecting camellias for staggered flowering times should give color all fall and winter. Workshop topics include selection, planting, and care.
The registration fee is $10.00 (includes materials and supplies). Participants must register online (those needing assistance with registering can call the Extension Office at 352-955-2402). There are no refunds for the registration fee.
