The Lockyer Valley Orchid Society invited locals and visitors to admire the blooming plants and learn about the rich culture of various orchid types during its open show across 10-11 May.

Held at the Anglican Church Hall in Gatton, the event featured the winning orchids of a range of talented growers from across the region.

Gatton’s Karen Connors won in the novice section, with Rod Watts taking out the overall grand champion award. 

Guests had the opportunity to pick out their favourite native and non-native orchids at the plant sale stalls and receive expert growers advice.
