San Diego Botanic Garden – World of Orchids

The Palomar Orchid Society and the San Diego County Orchid Society are participating in a month’s long 'World of Orchids Show' running from Saturday, April 3 through Sunday, May 2 at The San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas in their new conservatory. The conservatory is a beautiful, state-of-the-art greenhouse, with a cement floor, humidity control, shading, ventilation and security. The exhibition is being designed and installed by the SD Botanic Garden staff with several of our society's members providing blooming orchids for the display as well as select plants from commercial nurseries. Society member plants will be exchanged out as needed on Tuesdays during the show. In addition to the outstanding specimens, visitors will enjoy high-style artistic floral design ideas created with cut orchids and other unique flower arranging materials designed by Creative Director, Rene van Rems, AIFD. The display will change and evolve throughout the month, so plan to visit frequently! On weekends, visitors can shop for unusual and unique orchids at the grower direct orchid market. At present, SDCOS members will be selling orchids the weekends of April 3-4 and 9-11. The Orchid Conservation Alliance will sell on April 9-11 and Lico Orchids will sell the weekends of April 3-4, 9-11 and April 30 thru May 2.
