I can’t keep an orchid alive for the life of me. That’s why I leave it up to others to share the joy of the orchid experience. In Buffalo we have an incredible resource when it comes to showcasing the beauty of the exotic orchid. It’s called The Orchid Show, and it’s run by The Niagara Frontier Orchid Society – a group that not only organizes a terrific show, it also promotes the conservation of natural habitats where orchids grow throughout the world.
On the weekend of February 22-23, visitors are invited to come and explore the magical world of orchids, in a one-of-a-kind setting that only the Botanical Gardens can provide.
As if seeing this magnificent display was not enough, guest to the show will also be treated to demonstrations on how to grow and maintain orchids. Hear from experts in the field that include Bloomfield Orchids, Marlow Orchids, Piping Rock Orchids and Hydroponics of Buffalo. Along with the invaluable information, there will also be orchids and growing supplies available for purchase.
Orchid Show February 22 from 10am-5pm and on the 23 from 10am-3pm.
Orchid Show admission is $9 for adults, $8 for seniors (55+) and students (13+ with ID), $5 for kids 3-12 and members and kids under 3 are free.
