The Camellia Club of South Alabama kicked of this season with a panel discussion featuring four of our top growers. Dr. Nick Southall, Rick Crow, Blanding Drinkard, and Chuck Shirk provided a wealth of information about all things camellia. Brenda Litchfield was the moderator. Club members asked many questions ranging from fertilizer to watering and planting. Each panel member had interesting insight into growing, propagating, and caring for camellias. It was a lively discussion and club members were able to get valuable information about a variety of topics and issues. While we can always ask good growers questions, the panel discussion allowed all members to hear the answers and benefit from the advice. The panel discussion was a great success and a perfect way to begin the camellia season.
