Bromeli­ads Make Won­der­ful Gifts for Christ­mas

The Bromeliad So­ci­ety of Aus­tralia will hold their next meet­ing and Christ­mas Party at the Fed­er­a­tion Pavil­ion, Castle Hill Show­ground on Satur­day, 9 De­cem­ber with plant sales com­menc­ing at 11am prior to the meet­ing. Ac­cess is via the new Show­ground en­trance off Show­ground Road into Do­ran Drive, Castle Hill.

“As a spe­cial favour to the BSA, the Gera­nium Man, Gary Dale an ac­com­plished opera singer will make a guest ap­pear­ance to­gether with Elaine his trusted pi­anist to pro­vide en­ter­tain­ment to mem­bers and guests. He has also agreed to bring along a va­ri­ety of gera­ni­ums for sale” said Ian Hook, Pres­i­dent, Bromeliad So­ci­ety of Aus­tralia.

“If you’re also look­ing for that spe­cial gift for some­one who has ev­ery­thing, than why not con­sid­er­ing a liv­ing gift such as a bromeliad?” said Ian Hook, Pres­i­dent, Bromeliad So­ci­ety of Aus­tralia.

“Air Plants don’t need soil or con­stant wa­ter­ing, they can live al­most any­where you put them and re­quire only reg­u­lar mist­ing or soak­ing to sur­vive. They also make won­der­ful dis­plays when clus­tered in a bowl or used in a cen­tre­piece.”

“Bromeli­ads are colour­ful, vary in tex­ture, drought tol­er­ant and very low main­te­nance with won­der­ful flower spikes. The most pop­u­lar are Guz­ma­nias, Til­land­sias, Vrieseas, Aech­meas and Ne­o­regelias”

Mem­ber­ship to the Bromeliad So­ci­ety of Aus­tralia is just $30 for the first year than $25 an­nu­ally. If you would like to ar­range a gift mem­ber­ship please con­tact the mem­ber­ship sec­re­tary on email: Mem­[email protected]
