65 years of love affairs with Orchids

A 65 YEAR LOVE AFFAIR WITH ORCHIDS

In celebration of its 65th Year Anniversary as the premier orchid and garden club of the country, the Philippine Orchid Society will be staging its much awaited Annual Orchid and Garden Show on February 25 to March 7, 2011 at the Quezon Memorial Circle in Quezon City. The aim of the show is to transform part of the QMC grounds into an orchid paradise in order to promote orchid conservation and environmental protection. This shows will carry the theme ‘Green Living with Orchids’ and will focus on environmentally friendly ways of orchid growing to lessen our carbon footprints on mother nature.

The show will feature the best orchid blooms of the season set in landscaped exhibits executed by the country’s top orchid collectors and landscapers. A competition will also be on hand to select the best orchid and the best garden landscape of the show. Free lectures on orchid care will be given daily at 2 p.m. by orchid experts and a plant bazaar will be set up for those who wish to buy orchids direct from the growers.
