Fall Orchid Festival and Show
October 22nd, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Join us in the Propagation House on October 22nd, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., to observe the diverse and beautiful group of Orchidaceae we will have to show on the cement tables of the greenhouse. The Mount Baker Orchid Society, which has been a group of hobby orchid growers for 50 years, will discuss how to keep the unique plants alive, happy, and repeat blooming. The Orchidaceae family is the largest of flowering plants, including natives in Washington. Most ornamentals, though, are tropical and epiphytic (they don’t grow in soil) and require unique care from other houseplants. If you have questions concerning your orchid plants, we will have “orchid doctors” on-site to offer advice on care as well as provide tips on re-blooming. The Mount Baker Orchid Society will also offer their services by donation to re-pot your orchids.
We hope you will join us for our 5th Annual Orchid Festival here at the Nursery. You will surely be impressed by the diversity of plants and the knowledge of the orchid experts.
