Exotic plants on show in Dial Post

VISITORS to a West Sussex garden centre this weekend (March 26 and 27) will be able to get some free advice about orchids at an event dedicated to the exotic plants.

Staff at Old Barn Nursery and Garden Centre in Dial Post will be hosting the Orchid Weekend during normal garden centre hours to give customers advice on the care of orchids.

Mig Ammolla, manager of the garden centre, said: “We wanted to have a weekend dedicated to these beautiful plants to give people interested in orchids an introduction to them.”

During the weekend there will be free advice on caring for the plants and there will be a range of 12 orchid varieties on display.

Mig added: “As well as all the free expert advice provided during the Orchid Weekend, we will also have displays of orchids on show running up to and including Mothering Sunday on April 3. These exotic and beautiful plants make lovely gifts for mums.”
