Blooms in our collections…and an orchid sale update

Catt the Garden Girl came dressed for the Orchid Sale

Lots of color in our collections!

Send me your blooms, and I’ll post them to the OSGKC Program News blog. Take a look at the great orchids currently blooming in Susie Hanna’s collection.

Over the weekend, five OSGKC members held an Orchids and Garden Plants Sale, in conjunction with the Ward Parkway Homes Association Annual Garage Sale and the Johnson County Master Gardeners’ Tour.

The two-day sale brought in many customers. Several customers, who are new orchid growers and learned about OSGKC at the sale, expressed an interest in attending society meetings. Ten percent of the OSGKC members’ earnings on the orchid sales will go to the society.

 Due to the sale success, we will probably do it again in 2011. If you’re interested in participating, start making plans to contribute your plants to the sale. It’s a great way to refresh an orchid collection, make some money and help the society at the same time!
