Mounts Botanical Garden is celebrating summer’s end on September 14-15 with the annual end-of-summer plant sale, Everything Orchids: A Shady Affair. This annual sale is for all you epiphyte fans out there who dig plants that thrive in the shade. More than 30 of the area’s top growers will be on hand with a variety of orchids, begonias, bromeliads, ferns, hoyas and aroids for sale, as well as all your growing accessories needs. A silent auction of tabletop arrangements will take place to benefit the botanical garden.
For those of you who are tending a burgeoning green thumb, there will be lectures on topics ranging from basic orchid care to proper plant selection for shady growing conditions, and more. For those looking for tips on care, handling and re-rooting, there will be demonstrations on proper technique so not to damage these delicate plants.
