Last week, the Roxborough Windflowers Club took a field trip to the spacious greenhouse at Fantasy Orchids in Louisville. Hannah, one of their knowledgeable staff members, gave us an informative presentation about properly caring for orchids. We learned all about light levels, watering schedules, humidity techniques, temperature control, and a recommended fertilizer to increase flowering. She also showed us how to re-pot an orchid. The greenhouse included a huge variety of beautiful orchids that you cannot find in stores.Fantasy Orchids really cares about their customers and wants them to enjoy these beautiful plants.
After the presentation, we had a tasty lunch at Zucca Italian Ristorante in Louisville, Colorado. Locally owned and operated, Zucca Italian Ristorante celebrates the broad range of Italian cuisine. Their commitment to fresh, locally produced and organic ingredients led them to create our own farm, Three Leaf Farm in Lafayette. The chefs at Zucca work directly with their farmer to plan the wide variety of vegetables, fruits and herbs they grow and use in creative seasonal menus.
