This year marks the 70th anniversary of the formation of the New Zealand Orchid Society, and this year will be the 69th time we have held our annual Spring Show.

Orchid collecting in Victorian England was a huge craze, and the wealthy financed expeditions to far off lands in search of new varieties. These they could show off to their friends, and even have them named after themselves, if they proved to be a new species. At the same time hybridising began, thus creating even more new plants. No longer collected from the wild, hybridising is how new orchids are created today.

Come along and see our wonderful show, and discover why orchids were so popular then, and are even more popular and sought after today.

There will be thousands of colourful blooms on display by members, and a number of commercial sellers will also be at the show, offering a wide variety of new and exciting orchids for sale.

Of course we always have members on hand to help with any growing questions you may have. Come along and discover the wonderful world of orchids, and how easy it is for you to start growing them as well.
