Arthur Winter is one of the most talented and respected orchid growers that this region has produced.

Winter is pictured with two of the magnificent Paphiopedilums that he has grown.

His orchids, and others of a similar quality, will be displayed at the Byron District Orchid Society annual show at the Mullumbimby Ex-Services Club from September 7 till 8.

Everyone is welcome to submit orchids for the show. Just bring them to the club on Thursday 6 between 4 and 5pm and members will be only too happy to assist you. As usual there will be a massive sale of orchids and other plants as well as a fine display.
