Camellias – Glorious Camellias!
All are welcome this weekend to the Southern Queensland TAFE Horticultural Centre to indulge your senses with the beauty and the sheer delicacy of the camellia blooms. Heritage Camellia Hall will be filled with hundreds of beautiful camellias from perfect whites, creams and pinks through to deep reds. There could even be a yellow one or two. Truly a mass of colour and beauty.
We again have a panel of inspirational speakers who will share their knowledge and help you with all your gardening questions.. Stephen Ryan, Penny McKinlay, Brian Sams, Rusell (correct spelling) Campbell, Donna Hay and our own local panel of camellia growers, David and Lyn Newlands and Lyn Shailer . They will be only too happy to give you all the tips to grow your camellia plants to perfection and to inspire you to have the courtyard of your dreams.
This year we are adding Christmas in July to our festival. We are having a gourmet market with christmas goodies and wine. Our chefs, Lee Faulkner and Ric Osborne will be putting a christmas flavour into all of their dishes. Come and learn from the very best.
The Toowoomba Floral Art Group will be displaying christmas decorations and also demonstrating how to make christmas wreaths. Come and stroll through our delightful winter garden. It is a beautiful garden that will delight and inspire you.
For the first time photographers will capture the essence of Toowoomba in winter with their entries in our Photographic Competition.
Santa will call both Saturday and Sunday for the children.
