Our speaker is John Tullock, “Growing Hardy Orchids”
We have a 6:30 gathering time and 7:00 presentation time. A surprising number of terrestrial orchids are hardy, some able to withstand temperatures down to minus 50°F or minus 45.5°C. Though they have a reputation for being challenging to cultivate, in truth, most hardy orchids are no more so than a rose. Adventurous gardeners with an appreciation for temperate orchid species and native wildflowers can add hardy orchids to their collection.
