John Gay 'A Peruvian Experience' - Rescheduled from cancelled March Meeting


 13:30 Doors open

14:30 Speaker: John Gay - A Peruvian Experience

 John Gay was President of the North of England Orchid Society for 18 years, and a member for over 40 years. He has a collection of around 2,000 orchids, with a special interest in Phragmipedium  and Odontoglossum (now called Oncidium). He raises plants from seed, is a valued member of the RHS Orchid Committee, and his trip to Peru to see Phragmipedium kovachii has entered the annals of great orchid expeditions around the world. If he had put it on YouTube, it would have "gone viral", but he will present it in person.
