January marks the beginning of show season in Orchid World. The kickoff to festival season begins for me in New Jersey with my friends at the North Jersey Orchid Society. Their show runs Friday, January 13 through Sunday, January 15. Check out their website or Facebook page for more information. For those of you in that area, you should also know that the Deep Cut Orchid Society hosts another great show in New Jersey Feb 3-5. For more info, check out their site.
Nobody appreciates winter more than Minnesotans, in my experience. The Orchid Society of Minnesota and Como Conservatory and Zoological Park join forces to combat the winter gloom with their show January 28-29. Not only are there lots of orchids to enjoy, the walk through the gardens (inside!) is glorious.
If you’re not near either of these shows, you can also find me at the Greater Lansing Orchid Show and Sale (February 25-26) as well as the Ann Arbor Orchid Festival (March 18-19).
Happy growing, my friends!
