Meetings now take place at The Seniors Centre,Frontenac Room,56 Francis Street, Portsmouth District,Kingston, Ontario. A map of our new meeting place is shown below where there is plenty of parking.

Meetings start at 1:30 PM but come early to check out the library, plants for sale and to chat with other members.

If you have a sick orchid, a "Plant Doctor" is available each week at 1:00pm. (please bring your sick plant in a plastic bag).

Our meetings include a Show Table of orchids in bloom, announcements of upcoming events, a raffle with orchid or orchid related prizes and guest speakers, presenting on a wide range of topics of interest to beginners and more experienced growers. Visitors are very welcome.




Annual Auction

The KOS holds an auction of orchid plants every year and this year it will be held during the March meeting. All members are welcome to consign plants for the sale

Members and non-members are welcome to bid on the plants offered and this is a great way to acquire new plants. Also to have the advantage of getting cultural advice from the member grower who provided the plant.
