Join Kew Gardens for a  talk on historic camellias with Geraldine King.

Since 1871, the Kew Mutual Improvement Society (KMIS) has been running an annual lecture series to boost knowledge of the plant and fungal kingdom.

Geraldine is the Estate Manager and Head Gardener at Chiswick House, home to the oldest collection of camellias in Europe and possibly the world.

In her talk she discusses the introduction of camellias to England and how the historic Chiswick collection is cared for, including tips on caring for and propagating your own beautiful camellias.
