Orchid repotting

(Question)

Where could I take my orchids in for repotting? I would rather have someone else do it as I am very new to caring for orchids. The roots are looking very sad.

We don’t make specific recommendations as to services to use relating to plant care. However, I suggest that you contact the Southern Ontario Orchid Society.  As well, here’s a good overview of orchid care – including how to repot these lovely plants – “Growing orchids: a Toronto master gardeners guide” – you will see that repotting is not all that difficult, so you may want to try it yourself!  The Guide also includes a link to an “orchid chat” forum, where you can communicate with others who love and care for orchids. They may be able to assist you, as well.
