Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - My Council -

Fol­low­ing the huge suc­cess of their first meet­ing in the Hills Shire the Bromeliad Society of Aus­tralia INC will hold their next meet­ing at the Fed­er­a­tion Pavil­ion, Cas­tle Hill Show­ground Satur­day, 12 March with plant sales from 12 – 1pm. En­ter from the new Show­ground en­trance into Do­ran Drive, Cas­tle Hill.

“At our first meet­ing in the Hills Shire we had one of the big­gest at­ten­dees for a long time. There are ob­vi­ously many peo­ple in this area that love bromeli­ads.

Guest speaker on the 12 March will be Joy Clark and who will dis­cuss the species Ne­o­regelia lil­liputiana and its hy­brids. Lil­liputiana is the small­est of the Neo species and is pop­u­lar with grow­ers who want the cute fac­tor for their minia­ture col­lec­tion. They are also idea for peo­ple who would love a gar­den but live in a unit or small prop­erty, as lil­liputiana’s grow hap­pily in hang­ing bas­kets and they are low main­te­nance” said Ian Hook, Pres­i­dent, BSA

Our meet­ings in­clude plant sales, club news, raf­fles and com­pe­ti­tions as well as pro­vid­ing an op­por­tu­nity to meet with like-minded peo­ple in a friendly and invit­ing en­vi­ron­ment. Vis­i­tors to the club are most wel­come to at­tend a cou­ple of meet­ings prior to join­ing.

The mem­ber­ship an­nual fee is $25 and the club meets on the sec­ond Satur­day of each month with plant sales to the pub­lic and mem­bers com­menc­ing at 12.00pm fol­lowed by the meet­ing at 1pm.” said Ian Hook, Pres­i­dent, BSA.
