October 27th we will be presenting 2 special programs on Orchids. Scott Kenney, Blue Mount’s Perennial Department Manager and resident orchid expert will be conducting them both.
First up at 11am, a 45 minute talk will be held on how to grow and flower orchids in your home. We will have samples of the various types of orchids you can grow. The history of orchid growing and current orchid conservation methods will be covered. We will finish up with pest and diseases and why orchids don’t like ice.
Beginning at 12:30 and continuing until 2pm will be a hands on workshop on repotting orchids. Many new orchid growers are afraid to repot their orchids. Bring in up to 2 of your orchids and we’ll coach you on how to repot them. A few easy steps make it easy and stress free, for you and your plant!
The 11am talk is free, though we would appreciate your calling ahead by Friday the 26th so we can have enough seats available. We will also post an event on our Facebook page, where you can RSVP. Please Like us on Facebook!
The 12:30 workshop has a modest charge to cover the cost of basic repotting materials. We have orchid bark, moss, and pots for purchase. Attendees to either or both programs are eligible for a 20% discount on orchids and orchid growing supplies that day!
Once again, please let us know by Friday October 26th if you will be attending one or both of the programs! We hope to see you there!
