Festival of Camellias
Massee Lane Gardens celebrates the 2021 Festival of Camellias and the value of Therapy in the Gardens for the entire month of February 2021. Although camellias bloom from late fall through early spring, February is the peak of the camellia blooming season. Visitors can stroll pathways through nine acres of specialty gardens full of blooming heirloom, modern, and species camellia plants.
Professionally guided tours and box lunches are available throughout the season for groups of ten or more. Tour lunches are available on a first come, first served basis. Boxed lunch tours are $15 each and will be served between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Lunches are provided by Stephanie Goodman of PeeWee Bakery Sweets in Montezuma, Georgia. Tours may be scheduled before or after lunch.
Each lunch includes bag of chips, grapes, a homemade white chocolate cupcake, a bottle of water, mayo and mustard on the side, and utensils, napkin, salt & pepper.
Choices include ham, turkey or chicken salad on a croissant or a fresh garden salad. Please advise of any dietary restrictions when making reservations and placing an order for your group.
Download a lunch menu and then call toll free (877) 422-6355 to select the date of your choice and make reservations. Payment must be received two weeks in advance for luncheon tours. (Cancellations require a week’s advance notice.) Phone payments by credit card are accepted.
Camellia plants will be on sale throughout the season and during each event. The Garden Gift Shop will also be open with an eclectic collection of camellia and garden-themed gifts ranging from home decor to jewelry and accessories.
Spending time outdoors is proven to improve physical and mental health and strengthen the immune system. Over the past year we have all been subject to the stress of the recent health crisis. In appreciation of the important role gardens play in healing our mind and body, come join us! A schedule of fun activities will add to the joy of seeing so many different colors, sizes and forms of camellias, and educational presentations and workshops will offer information on developing, caring for, and enjoying camellias. You may also just take a stroll through the gardens.
