Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we’ll enjoy being back at Northaven Gardens! For March, Dustin Miller will be joining us via Zoom to talk about flasking. He is a Canadian plant hobbyist who has been growing orchids and rare plants for over 10 years. He more recently started growing orchids from seed in 2018, which has helped shift his approach to orchid culture and care. Growing orchids from seed can feel like an impossible process, but it’s more like making jam or homebrewing beer – a series of steps that takes a bit of time, commitment, the right tools and an interest.
After Dustin’s talk, we’ll end the Zoom part of our meeting and have some fun with our table judging and raffle. Come join us for some colorful community after a long winter!
Come early, at 2pm, for Orchids 101 in the front of the greenhouse. Lorna will be talking about moving orchids outside for the summer.
