A Center for Garden Treasures
Just in time for Mother’s Day, Geobunga and the Kunia Orchid Society will host a free seminar that focuses on one of the oldest flowering plants — orchids. Learn how to properly care for this graceful flora at 9 a.m. Saturday, May 12 at Geobunga Garden Center, located at 4299 Lawehana St. in Salt Lake, across from Target. The company also will have hundreds of orchids available at farm-direct wholesale prices, perfect for a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift.
Geobunga’s Keola Kalama leads the workshop, delving into topics such as how to transplant, split, prune and care for orchid plants. Featured orchids include the Cattleya and Dendrobium varieties, which are great for people who are just starting out, as well as for seasoned orchid growers who love to collect different types of orchids.
“Orchids have this innate beauty and grace,” said Andrew Dedrick, Geobunga executive director. “Did you know that since the 19th century, horticulturists have produced more than 100,000 hybrids and cultivars? In addition, the Cattleya orchid in particular has come to stand for mature charm, making it a popular choice for Mother’s Day.”
Geobunga also will have hundreds of orchids available for purchase, starting at prices as low as $5.
“If you’ve procrastinated getting your mother a gift, come down to Geobunga this week where we will have so many styles and sizes of orchids to choose from,” Dedrick said. “We also have literally thousands of pots ranging in color, finish and design. You can easily create a unique gift your mom will treasure on any size budget.”
