MONMOUTH COUNTY, NJ:  On Saturday, October 5th, from 10am-4pm, The Deep Cut Orchid Society (DCOS) held their premier annual orchid auction with over 300 plants! This is an event that draws people from all over New Jersey. The event was held at The Garden Room at Monmouth Park Racetrack 175 Oceanport Ave, NJ 07757. Admission and parking were complimentary and there was an optional hot buffet lunch.

The DCOS annual orchid auction is unrivaled in its depth and breadth. It's a once a year opportunity to get access to plant material from all over the world, and there are always amazing buying opportunities. The orchid growers supporting our auction provide world class plant material and DCOS has plants provided by members as well, many of whom are accomplished growers in their own right with numerous floral and cultural awards recognizing their plants and growing skills. Auctions are a great way to acquire specimen size plants that might otherwise take years for the hobbyist to grow. If you missed out you can join DCOS and see and care for amazing plants; some you just won't see anywhere else. Whether it's a rare specimen, or a hot deal on an easy to grow, blooming beauty, there is truly something for everyone to bid on at the auction.

The afternoon was highly successful and many lucky takers took home beautiful orchids. For More Info Visit:
