Sales Table News!


With more products and a comprehensive catalogue available on line shortly, the sales table will be bigger and better than ever this year.


We will have a larger and more varied selection of seedlings available from a wider range of growers.


Those members who purchase $20 or more worth of products on the night will now be in the running to receive a $5 voucher for future purchases.


One important change to note is that due to my responsibilities as president, the table will only be open before the meeting and not during the break. We will however be open earlier (from 7.15pm) giving everyone ample time to complete their purchases.


Also the table will be set up as a display; i.e. everything available will be on the table with a price attached, so just let me know what you need as the supplies are all under the tables (excluding plants of course). If you require bark or larger quantities of any item on the table, please email me before 10.00am on the Friday of the meeting.

There will be an even bigger selection of hybrid dendrobium and sarcochilus seedlings from Tinonee Orchids and other reputable growers on offer both on the sales table and our raffle. Many of these crosses you haven't seen before!
