Branch Annual General Meeting and tour of the glasshouses

All meetings , unless otherwise indicated are held in the Hopkirk Building and enrance to the Gardens is by the side gate in Queen Margaret Drive between 7:00 and 7:30pm. Parking is available within the Gardens.

The Glasgow Branch of the Scottish Orchid Society meet in the Hopkirk Building which is located within Glasgow Botanic Gardens, home to one of the largest collection of orchids within the UK. We are all amateurs with varying skill levels and you will not be alone if you know virtually nothing about these spectacular plants.

Our meetings usually consist of an orchid related talk, followed by practical demonstartions and/or cultural advice. At many of our meetings we have plant auctions and/or seedlings for sale all at very low prices. Why not come along and be ready to be hooked!
