The South Carolina Botanical Garden is on the campus of Clemson University. The Garden is open for people to walk in and enjoy, with rules requiring masks and social distancing. In our coldest months, the magnificent camellia collection is alluring. But the beauty doesn’t stop there.
In their latest newsletter, Director Sue Watts included photographs of many plants with great winter interest. They also have a series of classes coming up with registration now open. Topics include orchid care, butterfly gardening, secrets to success with tomatoes, planning for a great spring garden, and other virtual opportunities – one I’m looking forward to is spring ephemerals that bloom in the garden. Their virtual Junior Naturalist program encourages kids to learn more about the flora and fauna surrounding them. Search South Carolina Botanical Garden for information on these and other programs.
