Woolgoolga orchid sweet spot

WOOLGOOLGA'S Yeates Hall will host a dazzling display of hundreds of flowering orchids on Saturday, October 1.

Club President Brian Newman said all the club's members, not just a select group, contributed to the hard work involved in staging a major orchid show.

This year visitors to the show can also be a judge for a day, voting for the new People's Choice Award, which is independent of the professional judging.

A Garden Expo will be held in conjunction with the Spring Orchid Show, with plants for sale.

Woolgoolga Garden Club will be providing tea and coffee and a sausage sizzle will operate from 11am to 1.30pm.

Expert and experienced growers will be on hand to chat, guide and provide the best tips and advice for your local conditions, while there will be short talks on a variety of gardening topics .

The Spring Orchid Show and Garden Expo will be held in the Yeates Hall at Woolgoolga Public School, 24 Scarborough Street, Woolgoolga.

Doors are open from 9.30am until 3.30pm, with the award presentation and raffle draws at 3pm.

Entry is free, with gold coin donations contributing to future shows.
