Please plan to join members of the Jacksonville Orchid Society Saturday 6 March 2021 from 10AM until 1PM at the Hagan Ace Hardware at 12501 San Jose Blvd in Mandarin.

Spring has arrived and warmer temperatures can be expected to persist for the next few months. And yes, then it will get HOT. Did I mention it is time to start RE-potting orchids? Not all orchids need to be repotted at this time, but we can advise you regarding which ones can be re-potted now, and for which ones you should wait. Join us at the re-potting clinic and let’s discuss preparing your orchids for the warmer weather ahead.

In an abundance of caution, please wear your masks for COVID. You may not be susceptible but others will be concerned.

Beginners and New members! Here’s an opportunity to “learn by doing” if you’ve ever had questions about potting orchids. Challenge members of the Jacksonville Orchid Society with your tough orchids and questions.

The first Saturday of the month from February through December, 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. (see https://goo.gl/maps/hfuiK2hZT5WnLsts5) 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!
