Charlottesville Orchid Society Hosts Spring Sale and Show

Posted: Updated:

Dozens of people in Crozet took advantage of a last-minute opportunity to get a special gift for mom.

The Charlottesville Orchid Society hosted a sale and show of the flowers at Tabor Presbyterian Church.

The society's vice president, Jerry Morris, says orchids are becoming more common, and part of the group's goal is teaching people to grow orchids correctly.

"What we're trying to help them with is the cultural needs, the light requirements, the fertilizer, the watering. What you would need to be able to grow them successfully and get them to hopefully re-bloom, because that's what we all want to do.” stated Morris.

Funds raised Sunday will go toward bringing in speakers for the society. Another orchid sale is planned for October.
