Blue Ridge Orchid Society

The Blue Ridge Orchid Society of Virginia meets the second Sunday of each month September through June, with the exception of May, when we meet on the third Sunday. Our meetings are preceded by a pot-luck luncheon at 1:00 pm and a short business meeting at 1:30. Programs begin at 2 pm, and we typically adjourn between 3:30 and 4 pm.


Our November meeting ls being held at the Advance Auto Parts Atrium, Center in the Square, Roanoke, VA.


In November our meeting will topic will be “Orchid Basics,” presented by Cyndy Unwin, our resident Master Gardener. We will also have a mini-show display of flowering plants and orchid plants for sale. This is a great opportunity to purchase a plant or two and get plenty of tips on growing them.
