The Orchadian
The new upgraded Website will be in operation in the near future. I encourage Member Groups to utilise their Home Page to keep Memberships informed. The June 2015 Issue of the Orchadian has some very interesting articles for all Members thanks to our Editor Greg Steenbeeke who continues to impress. Two new contributors have added their thought on their Orchid Breeding Programs, in Michael Drobski who is doing some wonderful work with his range of yellow hybrids along with some very colourful hybrids. Chris Pegg another Victorian reports on Dend. Australian Goldrush, a beautiful Hybrid well worth having in any collectiom. S & KY Chan have an interesting article on growing Sarcochilus in clear pots. Alan Stephenson reports on the Ira Butler Awards for 2014, and all Members are encouraged to enter their Orchids if Awarded or they win Champion of Show for their section and Class. The Annual General Meeting will be held in conjunction with the Kempsey Speciosum Spectacular on Saturday the 5th September 2015.
