Talks to societies and clubs
With so few native British orchids we would like to promote these beautiful plants as standard parts of the garden. It is important that they are produced from seed so that they do not endanger wild populations. We aim to help in the education and dissemination of knowledge about growing orchids by talking to interested groups.
With best wishes,
The Team at Bewdley Orchids
If you would like a presentation from Bewdley Orchids, Dr Wilson Wall will be happy to come along with plants and describe the process of growing orchids in your garden. A typical talk will cover the introduction of native orchids in lawns, meadows and flower beds, as well the different species we grow, plant care and naturalisation.
Talks booked for this year include:
17 October 2019 Wigmore Gardening Club
Growing Orchids in the Garden

If you want to try your hand at moving plants from sterile culture to pots and then on to flowering, we can provide the plants. These are unsuitable to be sent through the post, but we are able to take them to talks. If this sounds interesting just drop us a line via our contact page and we will let you know if we have the plants available.
Each flask will contain 5 plants and be £30, regardless of species. Some species are easy to move from flask to pot, like Common Spotted, Southern Marsh and Chalk Fragrant. Other species are a little more demanding, like Bee and Butterfly orchids.
