NORTHAVEN GARDENS SUFFERED MAJOR DAMAGE IN THE RECENT STORM AND WE WILL BE UNABLE TO MEET THERE FOR SOME TIME. (Go to NHG.com to see the storm damage and get news on their rebuilding)
GNTOS WILL MEET NOVEMBER 3RD AT THE GARLAND SENIOR CENTER
600 W Avenue A., Garland, TX 75040
The November program “Madagascar: Land of Extremes” will be presented by Society member Karl Varian who has been growing orchids since 1960 and is an American Orchid Society Student Judge. Madagascar has one of the richest and most distinctive orchid floras anywhere in the world and boasts almost 1000 species. He will highlight some of the endemic species such as Vanilla, Angraecum. and Bulbophyllum.
THERE WILL BE NO Orchids 101 in November.
Be planning ahead for our December auction! Go through your orchids: Are there any you are tired of? Do some need to be divided? Is there one you just can’t get to bloom? Donate those to the auction and bring some cash so you can replace them with new and different ones! Funds raised will help pay for our Spring orchid show in March next year.
