What's Happening


At this meeting we will conduct another one of our popular Plant Auctions, followed by a Members’ Forum Q&A.  So if you have spare orchids which are taking up space in your shade-house and would like to donate as a fund-raising activity, please do bring them along.  This is a excellent opportunity for members to purchase good plants at very reasonable prices, and you may even find that elusive one.  Good luck !!  Additionally, if you have a question about fertilising regimes, pest control, ingredients for your potting mix, which plants prefer to remain dry during winter, feel free to ask the members of our Society.  No doubt there will be a number of interesting responses !!


The first Orchid Workshop will be conducted on Sunday, 27 August in the Display Room at the Botanic Gardens from 2-4.30 pm, covering Potting and Re-potting – presented by Bruce Hall, followed by a Deflasking Exercise, presented by Ed Pearce.  All welcome but please let us know if you are attending so there is plenty of Afternoon Tea for all !!


At our September meeting, the Guest Speakers will be Paul Sloane and Barry Taylor talking about the Culture and Breeding of Lycastes – a very popular plant.
