The Hastings River Orchid Society will be staging their annual orchid information and show day to raise awareness about how gorgeous an orchid bloom is.

On display at the Wauchope RSL Club on November 3, the orchid society is encouraging people to come on day and check out the wonderful array of flowers.

The show is from 10am until 3pm.

Entry is by gold coin and organisers say there will be a large variety of orchids and foliage plants on display.

"We ask the public to do a popular vote on the orchid or plant they think is the best on display, at the end of the day the plant with the most votes wins, there is a first, a second and a third," a spokesperson said.

"There will also be a great range of orchids for sale and orchid accessories available on the day."

There will be two cultural talks over the day, one at 11 am and the other at 1.30pm so come along and learn how to grow orchids.

"Why not stay for lunch and enjoy the $6.00 meal at the RSL club then have another look at the orchids," they said."
