Annual Show

This year the annual show falls on the same weekend as our normal monthly meeting, so there will be no meeting this month as we will all be busy helping to make it a success. (This is also Easter weekend.)

To be announced


Of course, every meeting also includes all our usual features such as the show table, raffle and plants for sale, as well as the chance to meet other members and share your experiences. Most meetings will also feature our popular “Orchids 101” presentations, intended mainly for new members.

We will provide more details of this season’s meetings as they are firmed up, as well as any "extra-curricular activities" that are planned. Meetings are also announced in Spike, with full details about the speaker and the topics to be covered.
