Our History

Bob Wines Camellia Gardens & Nursery in Ocala, FL, has a long history and deep passion for gardening. Our family-owned business started when our founder, Bob Sr., turned his hobby of gardening and interest in Camellias into a business.

In the 1950s, Bob Sr. traveled all over the U.S. finding and learning about camellias. He collected thousands of different plants and used those to start his own business in 1952. Many local parks and businesses still have a lot of flowers he started, and many of his original plants are growing all throughout Florida and Georgia, allowing his legacy to live on.

In the 1970s, the business was passed down a generation and was expanded into what it is today, five acres of land full of Camellias and other flowers, plants, trees, and shrubs.

Our extensive experience and history in the industry allows us to provide expert advice and recommendations on how to create your own backyard garden complete with amazingly beautiful flowers and plants.

At Bob Wines Camellia Gardens & Nursery, our passion for gardening is evident and our passion of flowers apparent in everything we offer and the services we provide. If you want an education on proper gardening techniques, come see us.
