NYBG's 20th Annual Orchid Show 2023

Here in New York City, one of the first signs spring is coming is the start of the annual Orchid Show at The New York Botanical Garden. I love attending this show every year. Held inside the magnificent Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, it is known as the nation’s largest exhibit of its kind.

This year, the show's theme is "Natural Heritage" designed by landscape artist, Lily Kwong. It features a wide array of colorful orchids, both popular and rare. If you’re in the area, I encourage you to visit - the show runs through April 23rd. And please watch my latest episode of "Martha Gardens," a Roku Original, when I walk through this exquisite display of stunning blooms and talk with Marc Hachadourian, the director of glasshouse horticulture and senior curator of orchids at the NYBG to review how to best care for these amazing plants at home.

Here are some photos and a short video, enjoy.

If you didn't catch this on my social media platforms, here's a preview of my orchid show on "Martha Gardens" only on the Roku Channel. Be sure to tune in.
