Anyone going to the Durham orchid show on the 6th of September? Should be a great event there are 9 orchid traders and 7 societies. I will have a stall there and should have lots of species orchids, and nepenthes for sale.
Hope to meet some of you.
Oliver

Look forward to seeing both of you! I have never been before. How busy is the show normally, do lots of people attend? Need to know how many plants to take down. Are all the societies setting up on Saturday?

I was thinking of coming down. Not sure, it's a bit of a drive! Do you know which exhibitors are due to be there? Do you have any Rebecca soper neps? I like the colour of them :)

There are many... I'm not sure who they all are I just have names but there is...
Peter White
Ray creek
Phoenix
Chantelle
And 5 others that I don't know
8 societies
And my stall, we have no Rebecca soper, but we have much better than that. (Although Rebecca soper is nice) i think that it is well worth coming.

Thanks for the list :-)! So far I've not done well with inermis (though they were fresh unrooted cuttings, or my Hamata/burkei cross! My alata is going great though! Need nice easy ones I think!!

We do plenty of easy species and hybrids. intermis rarely ever works from cuttings, very difficult.

John is a founder member of BOGA and his father set up the business many years ago. He only attends a few events in the north now, usually with a limited range of species and hybrids often somewhat different to those offered by most of the general nurseries.
