You can always find helpful and friendly like minded people, willing to offer advice and assistance with placing your plants for judging should you wish to do so.
It is not necessary to participate in the judging side of things, you can simply enjoy the show, or perhaps buy another orchid at a good price from the orchid traders who attend.
Find that hard to get orchid compost, and get advice on how to pot up your orchid plant, buy sundries, or use our extensive library of orchid books.
Our news letters, which are sent out two or three times a year, perhaps more often if there is something we think would interest our members, will tell you what's happening in the society, and the orchid world in general.
Meet other members at our shows, or perhaps the Xmas Buffet etc., or if you want to get more interested, we are always looking for recruits for our show teams.
