The Care and Feeding of Your Orchids

Did you buy orchids in pots for your wedding? Have some left over that have stopped blooming or you're just not quite sure what to do with them? If you're interested in learning how to get that left over orchid blooming again, Harcum College in Bryn Mawr PA is offering a 2 hour course to help you learn all the ins and outs of orchid care. The class is open to alumni as well as the community. The course will demonstrate how to repot an orchid and if you bring in your "problem orchid," the instructor will give you tips to cure what ails it. Gail Sklar, a member of the Harcum Faculty and President of Master Gardeners of Delaware County is presenting the class on October 22, 2011 from 9:30am to 11:30 am. Gail has won ribbons for her orchids at the Philadelphia Flower Show. The cost of the course is a bargain at $20.  Pre-registration is recommended.  Register here.  If you can't make the class or live in another area of the country the Penn State Extension Services has YouTube videos that might help you out. Nothing like turning your black thumb into a green thumb.
