Here is a video of the North of England Orchid Society Show on 19th March. A wonderful bunch of people and some very exciting plants! Special thanks to Phraggy, Orchidbaz and Chalky (who I know thanks to this site) for making me feel so welcome...

The video turned out brilliantly Rachel. So pleased you had a good and worthwhile visit. Thirty one visits to this video and no comments is unbelievable. Hope your plants settle in well and that it wont be long before you see some buds. Thanks again tor you visit and we hope it wont be too long before we meet again.

Looks like you had a great time.

What a shame, Barnie. It was a great show.
Yes, Chris, John was very generous with his time and knowledge.
Thank you, Brian. It was completely my pleasure :)
And thank you too, David.

What a wonderful video Rachel, I enjoyed it very much!!!
I guess with all these beautiful orchid species around you, you would feel like a child in a toy store.
Thank you for sharing.

P.S. The Bulbophyllum medusae is fabulous indeed. Ours bloomed a few weeks ago. I will post it soon.
