The next Jacksonville Orchid Society Re-Potting Clinic will be held 6 October 2018, from 10AM until 1PM at the Hagan Ace Hardware at 12501 San Jose Blvd in Mandarin.
Believe it or not, cooler weather is just around the corner. Your opportunity to repot orchids is quickly closing, even though it still “feels” warm. Remember that although you are potting today, the orchid needs several months to establish themselves after repotting. As cooler temperatures arrive, orchid growth slows or goes dormant and new growth won’t occur until next spring. As a result, get your repotting done NOW!
Are you a new grower and unsure about how to repot your orchid? Challenge members of the Jacksonville Orchid Society with your tough orchids and questions.
The first Saturday of the month from February through November, Jacksonville Orchid Society members are available to talk with you, answer questions and help you re-pot your orchids. We will be at the Ace Hardware at 12501 San Jose Blvd. in Jacksonville from 10 am until 1 pm. Plan on joining us afterwards, when we’ll adjourn for lunch at the local Sonny’s BBQ.
In addition, Ace usually has a special orchid sale with big discounts on orchids and orchid supplies and bigger discounts on out of bloom orchids. Don’t miss it!
Here’s hoping to see you all there!
