  1. Autumn Show 2015

    May 24, 2015 by admin

    The NGOS’ annual autumn show took place from 1 to 3 May 2015 at Safari Garden Center. Thanks to wonderfully mild weather and the excellent support of all the members of NGOS, it was a resounding success. The show was well-attended by the public who were amazed by the variety and beauty of the orchids on display.

    Every show is different and this year’s was no exception – although Laelia anceps plants usually steal our show, there were a large number of Slippers (both Paphiopedilum and Phragmipedium) on display.

    There were also two exhibits devoted entirely to miniature and small orchids. Perhaps these displays are a sign of a move to cram more orchids into our very small modern lifestyles.

    186 plants were entered for judging and five vendors sold plants at the show. The show committee would like to thank every person who contributed to the smooth running of the show, but especially the WOS members who brought plants all the way from Johannesburg. All the effort enabled us to put on a beautiful showcase for the public.
