Our speaker for March will be our very knowledgeable member, Gary Gethen, talking about how to clean up your plants and get them ready for an orchid show. Gary moved up to Spring Hill from Key West with all his many hundreds of beautifully blooming orchids and over a thousand in total. He has been featured on Homes and Gardens TV (HGTV) and also in Better Homes and Gardens for his numerous horticultural talents. He often taught classes down in Key West on orchid cultivation, while running his own gardening business. His tropical environment was overflowing with his beautiful orchids with their luscious fragrances. We are fortunate to have Gary as a member of our club and we invite you to come and hear him.
We encourage anyone in the tri-county area around Spring Hill to come and visit one of our meetings. We meet the 3rd Saturday of each month at 1:00 pm at the Oak Hill Partner's Club. You don't need a reservation, just show up. You will find the Orchid Lover's Club a wealth of information. You may be an experienced grower or just have a curiosity about orchids, either way you will find the club to be fun, helpful, friendly and educational.
In addition to regular monthly meetings, with knowledgeable speakers, the Club sponsors tours of tri-county growers and over night travel to international shows, greenhouses and lectures. We also have a yearly orchid Festival, a Christmas Luncheon, an orchid Auction and an annual picnic.
