Opportunity to ask questions about orchids

KEEN gardeners will have the chance to ask questions to a panel of horticultural experts at an orchid show.

The Wessex Orchid Society is welcoming BBC Radio Solent’s Gardeners’ Questions to their Autumn Show with recording starting at 11.30am until 12.30pm.

There will be potting demonstrations, orchid displays, refreshments, a tombola and an orchid clinic where residents can get practical advice about their sick plants.

The show, which has been running for over a decade, will be held on Saturday, October 13 from 11am until 4pm at Portchester Community School.

Entry to the show is £2.
