May 15, 2018 NOS meeting

Hello orchid folks,

The NOS will be meeting this Tuesday at Engwalls Garden Center, 4749 Hermantown Road in Duluth. Social time starts around 6:00 with the meeting starting at 6:30. It is ok to come later if you need to!

We will start taking dues I think: $13 this year. If you are paid member of another DGFS garden club you need pay only $5. We will be discussing the Duluth Garden Flower Society plant sale at the Rose Garden parking lot Saturday, May 26th at 8am. See the event details on the right side. We will discuss having a June speaker ,Tim Culbertson, at a Friday or Sunday event. We have to decide on his orchid topic. (stanhopeas, lycastes, rynchostylus hybrids...).

We have been invited to schedule a visit to Ross and Julie's greenhouse (in Deerwood) in June around the time of blooming cypripediums. The NOS may have David Remucal, curator of Endangered Plants at the MN Landscape Arboretum, come up to speak to us and do a field trip. We can discuss dates for this too. FYI: The NOS is planning to have our Fall Orchid Sale and Repotting Event at Engwalls Floral Center, Saturday, September 15th. Does this date work? Finally, I hope you can make it to Engwalls on Tuesday. The Garden Center may be closed by 6:00 so drive past the floral building and take the gravel road on the right down to the Garden Center. Bring orchids for sale, show or raffle. Bring your orchid questions. And of course, bring any interested friends!

Thanks, Gary


Welcome to Northland Orchid Society!

Can you grow an orchid? It's easier than you think and it's fun and rewarding!

Thanks for taking the time to visit the Northland Orchid Society (NOS) website. Whether a beginner or an expert orchid grower, you will find all the wonderful things our site has to offer, and you are welcome to join the society if you are not already involved.

Like the passion you have for orchids, NOS membership is a truly rewarding experience. NOS provides a forum for us to meet and learn from each other on how to grow various kinds of orchids in you home. The annual orchid sale and various guest speaker and orchid show events allow us to share the appreciation and cultivation of orchids as a hobby.

Future Events

Duluth Garden Flower Society plant sale at the Rose Garden parking lot Saturday, May 26th at 8am. The NOS will have tables for selling orchid divisions, perennials, any flower or vegetable starts, etc. As a fund raiser, the NOS will get 15% of the sales. This is a fun and crazy event as sales are brisk and we are usually finished around 9:30 (And then go to Valentini's for brunch to warm up or dry off).

Visiting Ross and Julie's greenhouse in Deerwood in MN sometime in June. Details will be available soon.

St. Paul Winter Carnival Orchid Show and Sale January 26-27, 2018. See a Youtube video here.
