Exotic Gardening with Rare and Strange Plants

Just a quick note to all local orchid fans, the Central Vancouver Island Orchid Society is having their annual Show and Sale and it looks like it will be well worth a visit. Wow!

“Beautiful displays of different species and hybrid orchids by orchid clubs from the Nanaimo area, Victoria and Vancouver. Orchid sales, information and supplies will be on site, plus there will be a potting demo with Q & A on Sunday at 1:00 PM.

This is an annual event which is organized by the Central Vancouver Island Orchid Society, and presents many different species and hybrids on display. These are judged on Friday by American Orchid Society judges, so you can see which orchids are the best! There are orchids of many colors, sizes and fragrances to view. Members of the local club will be available to answer questions on growing orchids. Anyone interested in photography will enjoy the many choices in orchids for photos.”
