Camellia Garden Day Back by Popular Demand!
The response to last year’s Private Camellia Garden Day was so great, that our hosts, Chuck and Bev Ritter, have invited the Melrose Library Association to hold
another garden visit on December 13. The event is from noon to 4 p.m. Chuck , one of the top camellia exhibitors in the nation, and his wife Bev are growing almost 1500 camellias.
Larry Rahme will again be selling camellia plants including many hard-to-find varieties.
Besides touring the garden, there will be talks and demonstrations, silent auction, and cookie sale. This will be an opportunity to see varieties not in commerce and grown only a few places. Entry is $5 per person. Golf carts will be available for those needing assistance. Proceeds will support programs and activities at the library.
The Ritter’s address is 202 Mason Road. Mason Road is two miles east of Melrose off State Road 26.
