Showtime!

Have you ever wondered what goes into preparing an orchid show display? Kathy Dunstan and members of the orchid show set-up team will be discussing and demonstrating what is involved in preparing and setting up a show display. Topics will include: plant prep., taking the mystery out of showing, how to get your plants ready for the judges, what judges are looking for, as well as beauty versus substance in show judging. Using plants from the 'Grow and Show' table, the team will also put together a formal table display, and explain the hows and whys of plant placement.
