Somerset Wiltshire Dorset Orchid Society

  • April Meeting with Helen Millner

    The meeting saw 19 members see a good talk on Restrepias. Part of the Pleurothalids, there are about 50 species. Mainly Tropical Montane habitas, they need humidity and intermediate temperatures.

    Helen described the pollination with some extreme close up pictures. The table show was full with more each month.

    The society will be having a display at the Thorngrove Garden Centre Open Day on 12th April.

    The next meeting will be Jeff Hutchings and Hardy Orchids.

    The Society won a silver medal at the Bristol and West Show last week. Well done.
