SPRING BLOOMS ON SHOW

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

The ar­rival of spring was ev­i­dent at this year’s Dou­glas Or­chid So­ci­ety’s Spring Show last Satur­day with an ar­ray of spec­tac­u­lar blooms in a wide range of colour and va­ri­ety. More than 200 peo­ple vis­ited the dis­play which fea­tured many gen­era of orchids and a plant sale of both orchids and trop­i­cal ex­otic plants. “We are al­ways look­ing for new mem­bers,” Mr Ken Brown, pres­i­dent of the so­ci­ety said. The so­ci­ety meets ev­ery sec­ond Sun­day of each month at var­i­ous mem­bers’ homes where blooms are dis­cussed and tips and tech­niques are shared.
