Where to buy Native Orchids.

The displays put on by Toowoomba’s Orchid Societies during the Carnival of Flowers are great fun to look at, of course, but also have SALES. Here's the place to pick up bargains, as well as rare plants which are otherwise difficult to source.
This year, the Native Orchid Society’s display will be held at the Milne Bay Military Museum, (Cnr Anzac Avenue & O'Quinn Street Toowoomba), from Friday 18 to Tuesday 22 September. They are always an excellent source of Australian orchids of all kinds, including some very desirable local native species.
Our other two orchid societies display orchids from around the world, but there are always some natives for those of us whose interest leans that way.
The Toowoomba Orchid Society’s display will be in the St Paul’s Church Hall on the corner of Philip and James Streets from Friday 18th.
The Darling Downs Orchid Association’s display won’t be open until Saturday 19th, at Centenary Heights State High School Assembly Hall, corner of Ramsay and South Streets.
So if you think you’d like a good display of orchids at home next year, save your pennies, and get the plants next month.
