Monthly meeting on June 20, 2017
-From Gary

Hello orchid enthusiasts,

Hope all is well with you and you are finding time to enjoy the longer and warmer days. And I hope you are having success with your plants. Try to find dappled shade for your orchids that enjoy being outdoors, such as cattleyas, catasetums, vandals, laelias and some oncidiums. (Not so for phals or paphs however). Perhaps it is time to increase your fertilizer strength depending on your conditions.

We will be meeting at Engwalls Garden Center at 4749 Hermantown Road Tuesday, June 20th. Social time starts around 6pm, with the meeting at 6:30. The Garden Center may be closed at 6pm so drive past the Floral building and drive down the gravel drive down to the Garden Center. It is fine to come late if your schedule runs late. Bring plants for sale, show or raffle! Or even bring any problem plants for advice. Thanks to all who sold plants or helped with the Plant Sale at the Rose Garden last month. It was a great day and very much fun. We had sales of almost $700 in less than two hours! For July's meeting we hope to meet at the UMD greenhouse. August 18th we plan on having a speaker from CA on sarcochillus orchids at Engwalls Garden Center. Sept 16th we will have our Annual Orchid Sale, Display and Repotting Service at Engwalls.

Hope to see you Tuesday, 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 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 16th at Engwalls.
