The greenhouse features selections such as phalaenopsis ($20), cattleya ($25), and dendrobium orchids ($35).
Ask visitors to point out the prettiest one out of the hundreds of orchids at Eastfork Orchids and you'll get a different answer every time. Some will point to the bright baby vandas dangling from the arches; others will nod toward the rows of cheerful cattleya. The warm, 7,000-square-foot greenhouse abounds with exotic orchids and tropical plants, causing a reporter from Coastal Life to quip that there’s "too many to count."
Seasoned gardener Kimberly Romer and her husband, B.J., care for the rare and fragile flowers, enlisting help from their knowledgeable staff. The team of horticulturalists provides clients with expert advice, instructional classes, and supplies such as pots and fertilizers. They even offer boarding services, dutifully watering and playing fetch with plants while their owners are away.
