Waikato Horticultural Society - Bromeliads

February 2017
Thu 23rd



Our meetings are held on the 4th Thursday of each month (February through November) starting at 7.30pm. Meetings in 2017 will be held in a Wintec classroom which is across the car park from the Chartwell Square Room in the Hamilton Gardens complex, Cobham Drive. Access is from Gate 2 on Cobham Drive.


Our subscription for 2017 is $30 per member or $50 per household of two and must be paid during the February or March meetings for continuing members, or posted to the Treasurer (see address below). New members can join at any time. To help defray the speakers’ expenses, visitors will be charged $5 per meeting (students free).


Two of our members, Marie Healey and Jenny Gallagher, will talk about the general care of bromeliads including tips on how to grow them in our climate, which potting mix to use and how to take off the pups. They will bring along their favourite plants and also plants to sell.

Our meetings start with a brief introduction when forthcoming functions and visits are brought to the attention of members. Our guest speaker is then invited to speak. Following that, one of our more knowledgeable members discusses the plants brought along for the display table. The meeting finishes with supper, which is when our raffle is drawn. There are also plants from members’ gardens for sale.
Garden visits are arranged on an irregular basis.
