Hi

I went to the Solihull orchid show/BOGA christmas fair, It was anice little show bit thin on the ground but I think that was due to the weather. It was a shame that Ratcliffe Orchids werent there.

I bought a few goodies from Burnhamn could have spent more but made sure I stook to a budget.

Coelogyne ochracea
Bifenaria harrisonea
Paphiopediulm Sue Worth
Cymbidium elegans
Belllara Peggy Ruth Carpenter 'Morning Joy'
Oncidum Mcbeans Olivia X Oncidium mont UBE.

The first for are flowering size, and the other two are young plants should flower in the next, few years.

Hi Chris, yes I thought that it was a little disappointing and not as good as the Hinckley and District show at Hinckley and EMOS show at Radcliffe. I picked up an assortment of Restripia and a Masdevallia norops.

Ratcliffes have all but ceased trading and Dorothy was ill hence no Phoenix Orchids.
