Members of The Connecticut Orchid Society will be on hand to hold an orchid class, plant sale and repotting clinic on Saturday, March 25, 2017.  Snow date (hopefully not!) will be the following Saturday, April 1.

Basics of Orchid Growing Class11:00 am to 12:00 pm.  This class is geared towards beginner and hobby orchid growers.  Expert growers from the Society will cover the basics of growing orchids and share tips and techniques they have learned to grow them well and get them to re-bloom year after year.  Audience participation and questions are encouraged. Curious about orchids and how to grow them well? Wondering how to get that orchid you received as a gift to bloom again?  This class is for you.

Orchid Repotting Clinic12 pm through 3:00 pm.  Need some help repotting your orchids?  Want to learn the ins and outs of repotting? Anxious about tackling the job yourself?  Bring your orchids that need repotting and a clean pot for each. The Society will do the rest and you’ll go home with a freshly repotted orchid.  The cost starts at $5.00 per orchid in pots up to 6” and varies for larger pot sizes.

Orchids for Sale10 am through 4:00 pm. Looking for an interesting orchid to add to your collection?  The Society will have a wide variety of orchids for sale that are different than those typically available in the big box and grocery stores.  All sale plants will be blooming or in-bud to bloom soon and are appropriate for all growing conditions and beginner growers.

Proceeds from plant sales and the repotting clinic benefit The Connecticut Orchid Society.
