I’ve noticed a change in temperature over the last week. If you haven’t done so already now is the time to move plants under cover and give them some comfort over the cooler months. We need to keep our plants in top condition for the expo.

A friendly reminder; if you change your email address and still wish to receive newsletters please remember to give me your new details. I recently had a couple of addresses bounce back at me but through some detective work got hold of the new addresses, however, this does waste time so if you could let me know when you change your address that would be much appreciated.
We don’t wish to annoy; if you no longer want to receive this newsletter please let me know and I will remove you from the email group.

International Orchid Shows
For the travellers among us below are some orchid shows you might be interested in visiting.

2019 National Orchid Expo: September 19-22
There is just under 5 months to go to the big day. Please check out the Expo website for information and if you need to speak to the organising committee they can be contacted by email.

2019 Orchid Yearbook
The Yearbook will go to print in the next few days and books should be with Orchid Societies by June. OCNZ is pleased to announce that  our application with Pub Charity Ltd for funding to help pay the printing and binding cost of the 2019 Yearbook has been successful. Pub Charity has granted $5,000 which is a great help to us. OCNZ thanks Pub Charity Ltd for its continued support.
