Event:            John Oxley District Orchid Society Inc ANNUAL WINTER SHOW

Venue:           Auditorium Botanic Gardens Mount Coot-tha

This is considered to be one of Brisbane’s premier orchid shows.  On display will be Australian Native Orchids, Species Orchids from around the world and many Hybrid Orchids.  

On both days there will be potting demonstrations twice daily, morning and afternoon.   Cultural advise from some of Brisbane’s best growers is available all week-end.  There will be lots of orchid plants for sale at very reasonable prices.  This is a great opportunity to purchase plants to increase an existing collection or maybe purchase your first plants to start on this rewarding and interesting hobby.

This is a perfect opportunity for photographers to get some great photographs of orchid flowers, the bold, the beautiful, and the very unusual.   

There will also be all the necessary potting requirements available for sale. 

In addition light refreshments and floral arrangements are available for purchase.  

The Brisbane City Council runs a bus service to the Botanic Gardens.  There is off street parking with disabled parking right at the front door. 

We pride ourselves on being a friendly society and new members and guests are always welcome at our meetings held on the second Wednesday of each month starting at 7.30pm.  Venue is  Oxley Bowls Club 24-30 Englefield Road Oxley. 

Please contact Sonia Addison on 32775825 or jodos-inc@hotmail.com for more information.
