Garden Talk: Growing Orchids

  • November 14, 10:00 a.m. – Meet at the Information Booth

      When Mina Edison lived at the Estates, it was her desire to place orchids in trees as they  grow in nature. Come learn how and where to grow orchids in trees and on various wood, cork, or hypertufa slabs. Guest speaker, Marilyn Vidussi, of Marilyn’s Exotic Orchids, along with Debbie Hughes and Janice Schmidt Staff Horticulturist will take you on a tour of what is growing in the trees. Marilyn has grown orchids for over 30 years and she will share all of her do’s and don’ts – making growing orchids easy and fun. Orchids will be for sale and also hypertufa slabs made by Jim Hopton, our volunteer and artist.

Participants will receive a 20% discount in the Garden Shoppe. Cost: Edison Ford Members $5; non-members $10. RSVP to Leeanne Criswell, Edison Ford Registrar at 239-334-7419 or lcriswell@edisonfordwinterestates.org.yellow orchid
