Recently the Asheville Orchid Festival was held in Asheville, North Carolina. This 4-day event was held at the North Carolina Arboretum and featured beautiful orchid displays, world renowned speakers, and even the opportunity to purchase orchids. In conjunction with the festival, the American Orchid Society hosted their spring members’ meeting.
Orchiata was proud to be the Platinum Sponsor of this well established festival! Appalachian Tropicals served as Gold Sponsor with Biltmore Estate, Dr. Ed Isbey, Jr., Travinia Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar, and Apple Tree as Silver Sponsors.
Throughout the course of the meeting and festival, open sessions were held to educate attendees on everything related to orchids and orchid growing! Graham Wood from Lehua Orchids and Gary Clark with Besgrow led a session titled “Award Winning Growers Choose Orchiata.” This session discussed the benefits of potting your orchid and other plants with Orchiata! There was also a potting demonstration using Orchiata Bark covering the proper way to repot your orchid so that it grows beautifully.
The Asheville Orchid Festival was so successful that Orchiata has committed to be the lead sponsor for the fall American Orchid Society Members Meeting and show in October at the Huntington Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California. For more information visit http://www.aosfall2016.com/.
