John Oxley District Orchid Society Inc (JODOS) holds its Annual Winter Show in July each year in the Auditorium at the Botanic Gardens Mount Coot-tha.

Setting up is on the Friday afternoon with judging on Friday night. The show is open on Saturday from 8.30am to 4.00pm and on Sunday from 9.00am to 3.00pm. The show concludes with presentation of prizes at about 2.30 on Sunday. Admission cost is $4.00 with children free. Dates for the show in 2019 are to be advised.

On both days there are potting demonstrations twice daily, morning and afternoon. Cultural advice from some of Brisbane’s best growers is available all week-end.  There will be lots of orchid plants for sale at very reasonable prices.  This is a great opportunity to purchase plants to increase an existing collection or maybe purchase your first plants to start on this rewarding and interesting hobby.
