Orchid growers welcome at free event

ORCHID lovers from Cambridgeshire are invited to a free event hosted by an award-winning orchid grower and one of the UK’s leading suppliers of plant nutrition products.

Peter White and Growth Technology are hosting an Orchid Day at DJ’s Garden Centre on London Road in Chatteris on Wednesday (October 5) to provide customers with free advice and plant MOTs.

Peter, who is Chairman of both The British Orchid Growers Association and The Phalaenopsis Alliance UK Branch, said: “I’m delighted to be representing Growth Technology at DJ’s Garden Centre’s Orchid Day.

“It gives orchid enthusiasts the chance to find out how to best look after their plants, as well as have any of their queries answered.

“People are welcome to bring their own orchids along during the day. I’ll be able to give them a free orchid MOT during my orchid clinic and diagnose any problems they may have, as well as give handy ‘dos and don’ts’ on how to treat their orchids, especially when they’re not at their best.”

The Orchid Day will take place from 10am until 4pm. Peter will be hosting free care advice clinics and repotting sessions.

To add to this, he will host talks at 10.30am and 2.30pm. Each talk costs £3.50 per person and includes refreshments. Booking is essential on 01354-693937, email djsgardencentre@hotmail.co.uk
