You don’t have to be an expert to grow an orchid – or to enter it into a competition, for that matter.

Novice orchid growers Joelle Baker and Alyssa Luck will be entering plants in this year’s Byron District Orchid Show, which for the first time will have a novice section.

If you have an orchid you might want to enter, email [email protected]

Rest assured, if you are a novice you won’t be judged against last year’s champions.

The judging is Thursday September 6, between 4 and 6pm at the Mullum Ex-Services Club, and the show will be at the club September 6 and 7.
