Plans in full bloom for Spring Show in September

THE Rockhampton Orchid Society, a club which has been in operation for 62 years, are proud to present two shows per year, and they are hosting their 2017 Spring Show in September.

Shows are held in autumn and spring - this allows our visitors the opportunity to see flowers specific to that particular season as well as the other varieties that flower multiple times per year.

The two-day show will be staged on September 23 (9am to 4pm) and 24 (9am to 3pm) at the Rockhampton High School Hall, Campbell St entrance.

There will be competition orchid displays - large, small and container-sized, individual entries of flowering orchids and foliage as well as floral arrangements and corsages to be judged.

The Rockhampton Bonsai Club will have a display and information stand and the Rockhampton Cake Decorators will also have a display and cake sales.

There will be orchid and plant sales of members' plants and also stands by our two out of town vendors, Max and Sue of MnS Orchids from Sarina and Alice and Thomas of Alice's Orchids from Townville.

There will also be the Orchid Potting Supply Sales and Keith Marsden will be conducting orchid re-potting workshops over the two days.

There will be a free door prize with winners having the opportunity to win a beautiful flowering orchid and the major show raffle prize will be a wheelbarrow filled with gardening supplies and plants.

Our delicious Devonshire teas and other refreshments will again be on offer.

Entry is just $3 for adults and children are free.
