Bradford Garden Centre to host free orchid advice and MOT day

A Bradford garden centre is repeating its free orchid advice day following last year’s event.

Tong Garden Centre is holding an Orchid Day on Sunday 1 March where lovers of the tropical species are invited to receive free advice and health checks for their plants.

The day will be led by former orchid grower, Chris Channon, a Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) gold medalist who said: “Orchid Days give house plant lovers the opportunity to find out how easy orchids are to grow and how best to look after their plants, as well as have any queries answered.

“People are welcome to bring their own orchids along during the day. I’ll be able to give them a free orchid MOT during my clinic and diagnose any problems they may have, as well as give handy ‘dos and don’ts’ on how to treat their plants, especially when they’re not at their best.”
