Colour in bloom at orchid society's annual showcase

HARD work, patience and plenty of colour will be on show this weekend with the Gladstone Orchid and Foliage Society set to hosts its annual Easter display and sale.

The popular display will be on show from Friday at Bill Robertson Toyota on Hanson Rd.

Society president Len Dowling said the display was an opportunity for community members to look, buy and appreciate hundreds of beautiful orchids.

"All of the plants on display have been grown locally by society members," he said.

"The first day is always a madhouse so I'd encourage people to get in quick."

The society has been running for more than 40 years and continues to hold monthly meetings.

The display will be open from 9am on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Contact Len on 4978 0239 for more details.
