The Victoria Orchid Society’s Annual Orchid Auction
will be held at the general meeting on Monday April 22nd at the Gordon Head United Church Hall.
There will be many lovely plants on the auction block. Last year more than 100 plants were sold and there were some fantastic bargains. Non-members are welcome. It is a great opportunity for growers to try a different species or just add to their collection.
This sale is open to the public
It is an opportunity to select orchids from a wide range of species that are not available in local stores. Photos will be projected on a screen for those plants not currently in bloom as the plants go up for sale.
Bidding paddles and detailed instruction on the procedure will be available at the information table at the entrance to the hall. Those wishing to bid on plants must sign out a paddle and collect instructions.
Attendees may browse the plants on the auction tables starting at 7:00 p.m. The bidding will start soon after 7:30 p.m.
The plants for auction will be listed here a week before the day of the auction. On the day of the auction, the lot numbers on the plants will stay the same as they are listed.
