Orchids have a long history of being associated with love, which makes them a perfect gift for Valentine’s Day.
The 2019 Botanical Gardens Orchid Sale, scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 9, through Thursday, Feb. 14, is an opportunity to purchase one or more of these elegant flowers. Orchids will range in price from $10 to $25. Sale hours coincide with the greenhouse’s normal operating hours.
“Orchid Care 101” will offer attendees tips on how to succeed in maintaining orchids at home. Mary Duke, orchard curator for the Botanical Gardens, will lead this workshop, which will be from 10 a.m. to noon, Tuesday, Feb. 12, at McMillan Greenhouse. Register online.
