Indulge Your Passion for Orchids At SOOS Annual Show & Sale
by Toronto Botanical Garden
February 6, 2018

It was a photo in the National Geographic that caught John Vermeer's eye and started him on a lifelong passion for orchids.

That was 46 years ago and today John has somewhere between 350 and 450 orchid plants under lights in his house. "My kids joke that we have a grow-op in the basement," he laughs.

You can meet John at the Southern Ontario Orchid Society Annual Show & Sale, Saturday and Sunday, February 10 and 11, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the TBG. There will be more than 30,000 blooms at the show including many hard-to-find orchid plants for sale. Tickets at the door are $12. There is a $2 off general admission coupon in the Winter Spring 2018 issue of Trellis.
