WHAT IS THE LONDON ORCHID SOCIETY?
The London Orchid Society was formed in 1976 to
promote the cultivation of orchids.
In addition to an annual spring show, the Society holds meetings
on the third Sunday of each month from September through June.
The September through May meetings are held at The London
Psychiatric Hospital, 850 Highbury Avenue in the Amphitheatre.
The meetings begin at 2:00 p.m. but the doors are usually open
1:00 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. for setup and socializing.
The June meeting may be a tour of some member's homes to see
how they grow their orchids with the tour being followed by a
pot luck supper at the last home, or a tour of an orchid nursery.
Each regular meeting features some aspect of orchid growing.
Meetings also include displays of blooming orchids, a raffle,
refreshments and friendly socializing about orchids. Plants can
also be purchased from local growers and other members.
Other Society benefits include a monthly newsletter, a summer
picnic, field trips to commercial orchid nurseries, exhibits of
members' plants in other shows around the region, a library,
and open houses at members homes to show others their
Annual dues are only $20 single or $25 for a family.
