Mackay Orchid Society Hosts Information Workshop

Mackay Orchid Society recently held an Information Workshop for New Members on Saturday, June 29.  

Members and new-comers engaged in a comprehensive information session, learning about the cultural seasonal changes and the adaptation process of growing an orchid. Along with this, they also discussed when and how to divide the plant, the different types of orchids and when to expect them to blossom into a flower, whilst also touching on the different types of fertilizer and pests that are expected to affect the overall process when growing an orchid.

The morning finished with members enjoying a sausage sizzle, with some even going home as happy winners with the raffle prizes they won.

Members have been busy getting ready for the upcoming Winter Flower Show on the 20th & 21st July at the Mackay & District Senior Citizens’ Centre, 58 Macalister Street Mackay. 

The Mackay Orchid Society hope to see you there and all newcomers are welcome.
