Our August program:

“Expanding Your Orchid Collection through a Diverse Orchid Raffle Table”

Make the most of your Raffle Winnings in the Biggest Little City!

August is too hot for most of us and everything moves at a slower pace, so this month we will take some extra time for our monthly orchid raffle and get into the nitty gritty of growing a varied orchid collection in your home.

Using a carefully selected group of superb raffle table plants, Sean Abbott and Joanne Gerow will provide detailed growing tips for each and every raffle plant! Learn to choose the plants best suited to your growing conditions and grow a wider variety of orchids.

 Show and Tell:  Please bring your blooming orchids and share your secrets on how you got them to bloom.

Break time: You get a FREE raffle ticket if you bring a snack.

Library:  Sarah Fletscher is our Librarian. Beginners and experts can always discover something new about growing orchids. We have a large selection of books to enjoy.

Do you have stuff for next month’s newsletter?  If so then contact Gisela before the 20th of the prior month.  Submissions may be edited for content.
