Orchid Day Sunday 1st March

We’re delighted to announce that orchid expert, Chris Channon, will be returning to Tong on Sunday 1st March for our annual Orchid Day!

Join Chris on Sunday 1st March for informative talks at 11am & 2pm to learn all there is to know about orchids! Chris, who is a Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) gold medallist, will share all his hints, tips and advice on how to care for these extremely popular exotic houseplants. You can even bring your own orchid for a FREE health check plus there will be fantastic offers on the day!

Chris, who will be back for his fourth Orchid Day says, “Orchid Days give house plant lovers the opportunity to find out how easy orchids are to grow and how best to look after their plants, as well as have any queries answered.  

“People are welcome to bring their own orchids along during the day. I’ll be able to give them a free orchid MOT during my clinic and diagnose any problems they may have, as well as give handy ‘dos and don’ts’ on how to treat their plants, especially when they’re not at their best.”

Chris will be our houseplant area between 10am and 4pm for general advice and will be giving talks and re-potting demonstrations at 11am and at 2pm. The talks will last 30-40 minutes and will give advice about how to care for your orchid, how to ensure that it flowers repeatedly and other types of orchids to grow beyond Phalaenopsis!

Tong’s Plant Buyer Steve Smith is delighted to welcome Chris back to Tong: “The event was so successful last year, attracting many people in store to learn more about caring for their orchid. Customers loved the free orchid health check, valuing Chris’s expertise.”

The demonstrations will be followed by a question and answer session and there will be some fantastic offers on the day too.
