North Eastern New York Orchid Society
Get to the root of everything orchid as the Society welcomes Greg Griffis from Longwood Gardens to talk about roots. Greg is the orchid curator at Longwood Gardens. He received much of his training from Tom Purviance and John Salventi when they were the owners of Parkside Orchid Nursery. He later worked for Hilo Orchid Farm in Hawaii before leaving for his current post. His talk will be focused on orchid roots and how they reflect the health of your plants.
Program starts at 1 p.m.
