Edinburgh Branch

Edinburgh Branch has now found a new venue to host their orchid meetings which we are pleased to inform you will restart with effect from September 2021. After a long break as a consequence of the COVID restrictions, we are looking forward to welcoming members back to physical meetings. If you are not a member but love orchids and live not too far from Edinburgh why not come along and learn more about these fascinating plants, you might even become addicted! Our members range from beginners to enthusiasts with many years experience. Many people are now growing their orchids successful on their windowsills or in a conservatory, you don’t need to have a greenhouse.

We offer a varied and interesting programme of events with experienced growers giving presentations about orchid growing that will inform, inspire and hopefully entertain you. We also have sessions where you will learn about basic cultivation and watering techniques, repotting methods and pest and disease control. The display table is an important part of our meetings and members are encouraged to bring any flowering plants they have for others to appreciate. Our experienced members are always happy to give you advice and our meetings are friendly informal occasions with time for socialising, sharing growing tips and enjoying tea or coffee and cake.

Everyone is welcome no matter your level of expertise, so why not come along?
