Topic: Creating the Perfect Orchid Environment
Date: June 8, 2017
Our speaker this month is Mr. Jeff Adkins. Jeff is known for his beautiful
orchids as well as his skill as an AOS judge. These, however, aren’t
Jeff's only talents. He is quite the master carpenter, recognized for
his expertise in building orchid greenhouses. A third generation grower,
Jeff was influenced by both his mother and grandmother. Their exceptional
orchids were always present in his life.
Jeff began his career at Jones and Scully Nursery in Miami and in 1984
he put together the Jones and Scully display for the 11th World Orchid
Conference. He began his own business, Adkins Orchids, when J&S
closed shop. The specialties of Adkins Orchids include big showy Cattleyas,
Vandas and Dendrobiums.
Jeff's topic this month is "Creating the Perfect Orchid Environment",
in which he combines his vast growing experience with his expertise
at constructing strong and durable shade structures and custom greenhouses,
which would make wonderful additions to anyone's growing area. I'm sure
we will learn a lot.
Jeff will be supplying plants for the raffle table as well as bringing
plants to sell, therefore, member sales will not be permitted.
