News NOS Monthly Meeting on May 17, 2022 at London Road Perkins: 2502 London Road at 6pm

Hello Folks,

Hope you are all doing well, and are having good success with your orchid adventures! Try to get your repotting done before the Summer heat. I think its coming... The NOS will be meeting at (2502 London Road) Perkins next Tuesday, May 17th at 6 pm. It is fine to come late as your schedule allows! From south I-35 keep to the left at the London Road exit, and make a left turn at the light. Bring any orchids for sale or show.

Ross says that he is bringing about 8 paphiopedilum seedlings from a cross we made three years ago at one of our NOS meetings. It is a large paph crossed with a small sized variety. We'll have to see what grows out and hopefully flowers! So now we will raffle or otherwise sell them as a fundraiser. Also, you may want to email/call Ross for bark/ fertilizer requests if needed.

We will be participating at the DGFS Plant Sale at the Duluth Rose Garden Parking lot Saturday, May 28. Setup starts around 7am. Sales begin at 8am sharp. We will prepare for the sale at our Tuesday meeting! Sale items can be orchids, any perennial divisions, any veggie or flower starts you may have, garden related items, house plants, etc. As in the past, you need to use a rubber band to attach a 3x5 card with the plant name, your price, and your name for each item. The cards are used at checkout for totaling the customer payment and to keep track of your sales. Please price using whole dollar amounts! As usual the NOS will receive 15% of the sales, as this is a fundraiser. So it is time to check over your orchids for candidates for sale and to make divisions!

Other news: The OSM's speaker on Sat, May 21 from 1-3pm is TJ Hartung, on 'Orchids of Mexico.' He lives in Puerto Vallarta. You are welcome to stop by at Bachman's in Richfield to check it out.

Best wishes, Gary
