“Our show appeals to everyone from avid orchid fans to those who just enjoy exquisite beauty. On display for judging will be a fabulous variety of hybrids and species,” says Melanie van Greunen of the Natal Orchid Society. “We anticipate Oncydiums and Dendrobiums to vie for top spot as they are just coming into flower.”
The show offers a wide selection of orchids for sale, the raffling of orchids, potting demonstrations with orchid experts extending advice. Refreshments and light lunches will be on sale in the tea garden.
Open to the public from 10.15am to 4pm on Saturday 13 October and 9am to 3pm on Sunday 14 October. Admission is R15 for adults and is free for children under 12.
