Stop and smell the Roses Errrr, Orchids
The Redland Orchid Society Charity Show is happening again on Saturday, 22nd April, 2017. Every Autumn, when these beautiful and interesting flowers are in full bloom, the members of the Redlands Orchid Society use this day, not only to enjoy and bask in the beauty of their plants, but also to raise funds to assist the local hospital auxiliary.
Why are orchids so interesting, you may ask? The many different shapes and forms of orchids is just phenomenal.
Many of these different varieties will be on display, as well as available for sale. There will also be potting demonstrations and all the potting accessories will be available for purchase, as well as expert advice on hand to help you raise your own orchids.
Light refreshments, including sandwiches, tea and coffee, will be available for purchase.
Entry into the display is $3 for adults - free for children.
If you are not local, this is another great excuse to visit Cleveland. The Donald Simpson Centre is within walking distance from a variety of cafes, eateries and boutiques, though do you really need an excuse?
