The Greater North Texas Orchid Society (GNTOS) is dedicated to the culture, protection,and appreciation of orchids all over the world. GNTOS brings together people interested in the culture and propagation of orchids, and also serves an educational function in disseminating information about orchids to the public.
We have regular monthly meetings (the first Sunday of every month) in which we have a featured speaker. There is also an orchid table show and plant raffles. Our meetings are located at North Haven Gardens, 7700 Northaven Rd., Dallas, TX 75230. More details and a map are located here.
Whether you are an expert grower or just got your first orchid, we welcome all to visit our monthly meetings and events!
February 5 meeting at 3pm
The February program on "Lady Slipper Orchids" will be presented by Dr. Dotty Woodson of D & B Orchids, Fort Worth. She and her husband, Berry, have grown and hybridized orchids since 1973, have 5000 square feet of greenhouses, and have registered 64 hybrids. Dotty has presented orchid programs, written articles about orchid culture and appears each Sunday on NBC DFW Channel 5 Morning News to discuss water issues, landscape water conservation, orchids and other gardening topics. She is an Extension Program Specialist for Water Resources at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center in Dallas. We'll have our usual table judging and raffle following Dotty's talk. Come and join us!
Orchids 101 will be led by Lorna Kissling at 2:30. We'll be looking at a couple of way you can record your orchid collection.
