I hemmed and hawed on whether to put this here, or in the general orchid talk... but it is more of an advertisement, so I chose here.
A bus trip to 3 orchid growers! Walk through greenhouses packed with orchids (and other stuff too) and buy to your little heart's content!
We will visit:
South Pacific Orchids
Rocket Farms Edit: Due to a conflict in schedule, we will be visiting Maplethorpe Orchids instead of Rocket Farms.
Enjoy the company of other orchid fanatics on the bus, shop for great orchids at several large growers! What more could an orchid lover ask for?
The cost for the bus trip is $26.00

-Bring a lunch, we will eat on the bus. Stopping for lunch takes away from precious orchid shopping time!
-It's also advisable to bring an open top cardboard box with your name on it for your purchases. They will be stowed in the cargo compartment under the bus.
I haven't been on this trip before, but I'm told previous trips have been a blast, and that there was even wine to sample on the bus!
It would sure be fun to meet other orchid board members if anyone in the area are interested. I am going on the trip
