Air-Layering Camellias is a method of propagation that allows just about anyone to root large size limbs on existing camellias easily and quickly. It only takes a few months to root a nice size camellia limb by a propagation technique that we call air-layering. the following step by step demonstration illustrates the basics of air-layering camellias.

Gene Phillips is one of the owners of Gene’s Nursery in Savannah, Ga.  He is a 2nd generation grower and attributes his love of Camellias to his father, who inspired him to breath in the beauty that they bring to him but more importantly to others.  In his ‘free’ time, you’ll find him wandering through old gardens, trying to identify flowers or taking countless number of photos to share with others!  He also enjoys meeting people and comparing ‘garden’ stories.
