Greetings Everyone! Spring is right around the corner and we should start seeing new roots in some of our orchids!
Last month we participated in the Darwin Day at the Museum of Natural Sciences. Our beautiful display was highly commended by the attendees and they were thankful for the received orchid growing advice and information. A special thanks to Phil Warner for coordinating the efforts and to all volunteers who helped in setting up the display, letting us borrow their plants, or both.
This month we will have a very informative lecture from Dr. McMillan about orchid pests and diseases. If time allows, Dr. McMillan will also look at any diseased plants and provide a diagnostic assessment, so if you have such questionable plants, feel free to bring them.
For those of you who may be interested in becoming more involved with the society and have time to devote, we are looking for volunteers to help with our display at the Sandhills Orchid Society Show, April 19-22, in Fayetteville. In addition to borrowing orchids, we need help with exhibit set up and transportation of the plants and props. Please contact Robin Gurlitz at email@example.com and volunteer!
Also coming up is our Spring Auction, scheduled for April 14 at the Lake Crabtree County Park in Morrisville. This is always an exciting potluck event where we have the opportunity to bid on beautiful plants so mark your calendars!
Best Regards and Happy Growing!
