The Bay of Islands Orchid Society & the Far North Bromeliad Group
Annual Spring Show
This Show is a marvellous opportunity for everyone to see the wide and varied plants and flowers within these two ancient horticultural families.
Orchid flowers are among the ‘glamour’ flowers and are beautiful either inside the home or providing colour in a sheltered patio. Some will flourish outdoors in a garden setting, against a fence, under trees and most will have foliage when not in flower.
Bromeliads make beautiful garden plants and give a wonderful sculptural effect to any garden. They offer a focal point whether in flower or not and add that something special or exotic to any garden environment.
There will be excellent raffles, potting demonstrations, quality orchid and bromeliad plants for sale by local growers as well as growers from Auckland, Whangarei and elsewhere.
Club members will be happy to answer any growing queries you may have or give advice on how to get the best out of your plant. These shows provide a great opportunity to see Orchids & Bromeliads many of which are seen now only in private collections.
The Turner Centre offers ease of access to The Plaza and free parking. So come along and support these two local clubs.
