The Amherst Garden Club’s January Meeting

January 6, 2022

Orchids All Around Us — Growing Orchids: Tips for Success!

Presented by Jean Stefanik

Enjoy a 20-minute slideshow about orchids, both cultivated and native species, followed by a hands on cultural demonstration that covers re-potting.

This presentation will allow plenty of time for Q & A, as well as Show & Tell!

Have you got a favorite orchid to show off? Or maybe a poorly performing specimen? Bring your orchid to the meeting to share with the group.

If your orchid needs some TLC, this is your chance to get expert analysis and advice on how to improve its performance.

Be sure to protect your orchid from the cold during transport!
