Toowoomba and Districts Bromeliad Society celebrates spring

SPRING is here and we have just completed our first year as a Bromeliad Society.

To celebrate, the club will hold its first Spring Show and Sale from September 19 to 21 from 8am until 4pm.

The venue is the school hall at Sacred Heart Primary School on the corner of North and Tor Streets.

With such a fantastic venue with plenty of space and natural lighting, it should be a spectacular show.

There will be 27 classes - two which are for plants other than bromeliads.

We are expecting more than 500 show plants and about 75 display plants as well 700 sale plants so this is a great opportunity to see and buy plants that aren't on offer at local nurseries.

As we have some members who specialise in succulents, they will be having a display table of succulents.

A bromeliad speciality nursery from Caboolture will also have sales tables.

During the year we had opportunities to have guest speakers from Caboolture and Mount Tamborine, as well as our members sharing their knowledge and tips at the meetings.

In July, we had a stand at an orchid show and had many people interested in bromeliads.

We know there are many bromeliad growers out there so we extend the invitation to come to the show.

Our meetings are held on the 3rd Sunday of the month at Sacred Heart School Hall starting at 1.30pm.

For inquiries, email toowoombabroms@gmail.com or phone Robert or Sue on 4634 7438.
