NW Flower & Garden Festival

NWOS Mentoring Program

The Project

This year the NWOS is joining forces with Hartley Botanic Greenhouses of London England to put in a 1120 sf garden (40 x 28 feet). The centerpiece of our orchid garden will be a “Victorian Gallery” style walk-through aluminum and glass greenhouse, complete with finials along the ridge, set towards the back center of our garden. More details to follow along with our proposed garden layout.

What else you need to know

Most of the flowering orchids seen in our garden will be available for sale at the NWOS February 14 meeting. Any remaining from that meeting will be available at the March 14 Auction.

Volunteer sign-up sheets will be available at the November and subsequent meetings.  We will need all hands on deck to help build, staff, and dismantle this garden. Hartley-Botanic is supplying the labor for building and dismantling the greenhouse structure. We will be responsible for everything else.  Gordon Cromwell, Joe Grienauer, and Joff Morgan are designing and organizing the orchid-filled garden surrounding the greenhouse. YOUR orchids will be the “stars” of our garden within the greenhouse.

Information about the Northwest Flower and Garden Festival can be found on their official Garden Show website.
