Orchids just right for weekend's Easter display

THE Gladstone Orchid and Foliage Easter Display is just days away.

The group has been preparing for months to showcase their most beautiful and exquisite plants and ferns.

Members of the club, which has operated in Gladstone for 45 years, anticipate this year will be one of their biggest.

President Len Dowling joined in 1995. He said the Easter display was the most exciting time of year for his club.

Friday morning will be their busiest time.

"It always is. As soon as those doors open on Good Friday, it's full on. The people pour in," member Sunny Jenkinson said.

This year's Easter display will be at Bill Robertson Toyota on:

  • Friday 3 April 9am-5pm
  • Saturday 4 April 9am-4pm
  • Sunday 5 April 9am-2pm
