Monthly meeting on April 18, 2017
Hi orchid enthusiasts!
Looks like another warm Spring is upon us. Or relatively warm anyhow. Hope you are enjoying some fun activities and maybe getting a jump start on Spring chores. The NOS will be meeting at Farleys next to Gordy's on Miller Trunk and Stebner Roads. The meeting starts at 6:30 with social time around 6:00 if you can make it. Come early if you want to order food! If you have to come late that is ok too.
We will be taking membership dues of $10 ($5 for those who are paid members of another DGFS club) for 2017. We need to have our dues and membership roster sent to the Duluth Flower Garden Society by the end of May. If you want to pay for membership but are unable to attend a regular meeting, you could email me for other arrangements. Thanks!
Orchids are or are soon to be showing signs of growth, so try to get repotting done as needed. Remember that we will be participating in a Plant Sale in the Rose garden parking lot May 27th, so if you want to buy/sell orchid divisions, perennials or garden seedlings be sure to save the date. Hope to see you Tuesday at Farley's. Bring a friend, and any questions you may have. And of course, any plants for show, sale or raffle. Best wishes, Gary
Welcome to Northland Orchid Society!
Can you grow an orchid?
It's easier than you think and
it's fun and rewarding!
Thanks for taking the time to visit the Northland Orchid Society (NOS) website. Whether a beginner or an expert orchid grower, you will find all the wonderful things our site has to offer, and you are welcome to join the society if you are not already involved.
Like the passion you have for orchids, NOS membership is a truly rewarding experience. NOS provides a forum for us to meet and learn from each other on how to grow various kinds of orchids in you home. The annual orchid sale and various guest speaker and orchid show events allow us to share the appreciation and cultivation of orchids as a hobby.
The NOS is planning to participate in the Duluth Garden Flower Society's sale at the Duluth Rose Garden parking lot Saturday, May 27th, where members can sell orchids or garden plants.
The NOS is working on having a speaker on Friday, August 18th, who will bring plants to sell!
Our annual NOS Plant Sale, Display and Repotting Service is planned for September 17th at Engwalls.
St. Paul Winter Carnival Orchid Show and Sale January 28-29. See pictures here.
