Last Weekend in April Brings an Exotic Orchid Show & Sale to Austin, TX.by glfrost, posted 02/26/13 13:01:00 category » Show
Exotic orchids are a prime example of Mother Nature at her best! An exciting gardening event will be taking place the weekend of April 27th & 28th here in Austin, TX. The Heart O’ Texas Orchid Society, founded in 1961, is proud to present the 42nd Annual Orchid Show and Sale, “Orchid Fever” at the Zilker Botanical Gardens/Austin Area Garden Center. If orchids have always intrigued you, or you simply need somewhere fun and different to take the family on that spring weekend, make plans to attend. Who wouldn’t adore a calming whiff of the tropics, and perhaps some enchanting blooms to place in the kitchen window back at home?
Admission to the event is free and the public is encouraged to attend. Admission to Zilker Gardens is $2.00 per person. Donations to support these educational efforts of the Heart O’ Texas Orchid Society are appreciated. For a complete schedule of events, or for more information, contact: Geoffrey Frost at (512) 413-3199 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Or get a preview of coming attractions online at http://www.hotos.org/. We meet monthly at Zilker Gardens Center on the first Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm, so no need to wait until April!

It’s a great place to find out more about these fascinating plants. My surprise was discovering the wide diversity of types of Orchids, their flowers, growth patterns and appearances. The combined years of growing and experience (of our members) make our Society a great resource for information and problem solving.
