STAWELL Orchid Society will celebrate their 25th annual spring show at the weekend.

The show will run from Friday to Sunday at the Stawell Entertainment Centre.

Society committee member John Walsh said was the milestone was a pretty special achievement.

"Twenty five years ago we would have never dreamed of running the show this long but it seems to be getting bigger and stronger, which is fantastic," he said. 

“It’s one of the biggest orchid country shows in Victoria and we hope to see many people come out to see this year’s show.”

Plants of different genera will be on display, including exotic hot house varieties, large and small orchid flowers and Australian native orchids. 

Members will be on hand to give gardening advice and there will be potting demonstrations. The show will open from 9am to 5pm on Friday and 10am to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday.
