The very first of what Hudson Valley Garden Association hopes is many, many great garden events took place Sunday, January 20, 2013 in the toasty warm, orchid-filled greenhouses at Black Meadow Flora in Chester, NY.
Our delightful and generous hostess was orchid-grower and owner, Margaret Bridge (Thank you Margaret!). Many attendees brought in their own plants for diagnosis. Most were in need of an easy orchid care fix – repotting. According to Margaret, orchids should be repotted every two years.
Black Meadow Flora is open for retails sales, but keeps irregular winter hours. Call (845)469-5055 to make sure someone will be there before you go. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the mailing list and stay updated on sales and events.
