Walton County Master Gardener Volunteers ‘Sprucing up’ Eden Gardens State Park

Spread the love

The Walton County Master Gardener Volunteers and others have been busy over the last few weeks at Eden Gardens State Park.  They have been air layering the historic camellias on the grounds.  Air layering is a type of propagation which captures the plant’s DNA to produce an identical plant.The newly rooted stems will be harvested in October and potted up for sale at the Annual Camellia Festival at the park next February.  The proceeds will be used for improvements for visitors at the park through the Friends of Eden, a citizens support group.  Pictured LtoR Pat Fletcher, Len Ross, Jean Smith and Marianne Burbach.
