The wonderful world of orchids

It’s orchid season again so diarise to come and see a wonderful display of blooming orchids at the Presbyterian Church Hall, Caledon Street, George. The show opens Thursday 13th and closes on Saturday 15th September. This Hall is just behind the George Library and near to the George Museum.

Orchid Society members will do 9 individual displays using the theme ‘Wonderful World of Orchids’. Their landscape or other displays will be judged and the winner will receive a trophy. Stands are judged according to interpretation of the theme and variety of orchids used.

Individual plants will also be judged by Hendrik van der Hoven, a Cape Town orchid judge, plus our three local show judges. There will be a Champion, a Reserve champion and a class winner in each category.

This year there will be an accent on educating the public with regards to orchids. We will have ‘easy to read’ posters supplying information on all things to do with these exotic plants.

Admission is R10 for Adults, children under 12 years are free. Raffle tickets will be sold at the door – the prize this year is for a blooming standard size Cymbidium with at least two spikes on it. There will be a second and third prize.

Opening times are 9am to 5pm on Thursday and Friday, and 9am to 2pm on Saturday. This will allow working people to pop into the show after businesses close on Saturday.

Potting demonstrations will be held on Thursday 10.30am (Cymbidiums) and 3pm (Cattleyas), Friday 10.30am (Cattleyas) and 3pm (Phalaenopsis), and Saturday at 10.30am (Cymbidiums) and 12.00 noon (Phalaenopsis). These demonstrations are very popular so do come early to get a good seat. Potting mix and fertilizers will be sold at the show. There will always be someone from the society available to give advice to members of the public.

Society members will have a stand selling plants and Outeniqua Orchids will have a selection of blooming Cymbidiums and a wide variety of other genera for sale.
