The Queensburgh Orchid Club is a community of people dedicated to the growing, propagation and showing of orchids.

We gather once a month to show our plants and share growing experiences.  Plants, growing medium and fertilizers are for sale at the meetings.

The hobby also has a more serious side to it. One can put plants up for award judging, where the plant is judged against international criteria. Our club is affiliated to the South African Orchid Council (SAOC). The SAOC coordinates the activities of orchid clubs throughout the country.

A National orchid show is held every three years in different cities throughout South Africa. This gives orchid growers the opportunity to meet other orchid enthusiasts in South Africa and internationally.

South Africa is part of the international orchid growing community, and very successfully hosted the 10th World Orchid Conference in 1981 in Durban. South Africa has recently hosted the 21st World Orchid Conference, held at the Sandton Convention Centre in 2014.

Meeting time and place

We meet at the Pinetown Methodist Church hall, Church Lane, Pinetown, every third Wednesday of the month, except December, starting at 7 p.m.


Club fees 2017: R300 per annum (includes SAOC subscription and 2 journals)

A monthly entrance fee of R10 is charged. This includes tea and cake and one ticket for the monthly plant raffle.

Please feel free to contact any one of our committee members if you would like more information.
