As the snow begins to show signs of metling, and temperatures “soar” into the 30’s, Spring is at least somewhere in the near-future for us, after a very cold and difficult winter.

Pull up a chair or seat on your sofa as George Hatfield presents “How to Grow Award Winning Cymbidiums” for our March program.

A past president of the American Orchid Society, George has also presided over the Cymbidium Society of America (CSA), the Cymbidium Congress, the Santa Barbara International Orchid Show board, and several local societies. He is an accredited judge for both the AOS and the CSA, and he has served as CSA Judging Chair.

He is best known for his work as a Cymbidium hybridizer. George’s hybrids have received numerous AOS and CSA awards, and he has hybridized and exhibited multiple winners of the prestigious Grand Champion Cymbidium at the Cymbidium-heavy Santa Barbara International Orchid Show. He travels around the country and overseas giving lectures on hybridizing pendulous cymbidiums.

Our Virtual Show Table will be back! Please send your Show Table photos to Carol Butcher no later than Sunday night Mar.7 to give Carol enough time to set up the show. You can view our previous Show Table presentation here on the site. So, grab a beverage of your choice and join us for another interesting evening of orchids.
