Dear all, we have decided to create a page listing all possible orchid related [free] online mettings, seminars and lectures held by various organisations in and out of UK to fill the gap that social distancing and lack of horticultural shows created.

Have a look here (it will be positioned under events in the top menu)

Please if you know of any we can add to the list let us know at
