The Victoria Orchid Society’s Annual Orchid Auction
was held at the general meeting on Monday April 22nd at the Gordon Head United Church Hall.
There were 103 orchids on the auction block and many people went home with great bargains. Patrick, our auctioneer, kept the plants moving, providing culture information for each plant. Joe, our projectionist showed the blooms associated with each plant as it went up for sale. An exciting evening!
This sale was open to the public
It was an opportunity to select orchids from a wide range of species that are not available in local stores and many orchids found new homes..
