BOYLSTON, Mass.- Tower Hill Botanic Garden is proud to host "An Orchid Jubilee," the Massachusetts Orchid Society's Annual Orchid Show. The show will take place on Friday, Nov. 2; 1-5pm and Saturday & Sunday, November 3-4; 9am-5pm. Thousands of breathtaking orchids will be on display throughout the Visitors Center and around the Orangerie and Limonaia, at Tower Hill. This show is known for its spectacular variety, creativity and informational value. As Orchid Society member Joanna Eckstrom explains: "...with the dozen or so orchid societies and individual orchid enthusiasts who participate, 'An Orchid Jubilee' is sure to be one of our best efforts ever." Some of the orchid societies participating in the show include: A&P Orchids, New Earth Orchids, Frosty Hollow Orchids, and more.
Orchid vendors from across the country will offer a wide variety of plants, supplies and even jewelry for sale. Art and educational exhibits will be held each day of the show and experts will answer orchid growing questions from visitors. Also, members of the Massachusetts Orchid Society will offer demonstrations on orchid care, instructional videos, and guided tours of the show. Although the judging sessions themselves are not open to the public, the results of the judging will be on display at the show. The show will represent a huge range of Orchids, the largest of all the plant families.
The Massachusetts Orchid Society this year celebrates its 60th Anniversary, hence the "Orchid Jubilee" theme for the show.
