Bob Tanem in the Garden: February 17, 2019

Our guest at 8:30 was Tom Perlette of the 67th Annual Pacific Orchid Exposition; this years’ theme is “Orchids of the Enchanted Forest.” The show, in San Francisco at the Hall of Flowers, runs Friday, Saturday and Sunday, February 22nd through the 24th; there will be a gala preview on the evening of February 21. Bob and Tom talked all about orchids, covering varieties, care, and of course the opportunities to see them all around the state this time of year.  The Exposition is a function of the San Francisco Orchid Society.

Our hour starts with Edie Tanem’s freshly harvested list of gardening related events and opportunities all over the Bay Area in the coming weeks — including the Orchid shows! Then it’s right back to the phones; America’s Happy Gardener Bob Tanem in holding court!
