Orchid lovers reveal the secrets of these rare flowers

ACCORDING to orchid grower, Bruce Hall, "If you're growing the right sort of orchid for this climate then they're a pretty hardy plant".

Bruce must be growing the right ones because he's been busy preparing some of his best for the Coffs Harbour Orchid Society Autumn Orchid show. It's on today 10am-5pm and tomorrow 9am-3pm at the Botanic Garden. All welcome, entry gold coin donation.

"Come along, see the orchids, ask us lots of questions, get a bargain at the sales table and bring your plants along if you'd like advice."
