Dear all,

The Table Show results are now published on the show's page.

Apologies it took us a little longer than usually. Unexpectedly September proved to be a very busy month for many of us.

Please keep sending your fantastic pictures to me for the following months. We will see how many pictures we have through the winter and potentially combine months if there isn't enough plants in the individual month.

In December we will hold the usual OSGB Picture competition online this year as well. (please send your entries to me on by the 14th of November. If you are submitting artwork it will have to be scanned or photographed) Most likely it will replace the usual Table Show, but as I mentioned please still keep sending your pictures as and when your plants bloom.

Considering the fact we cannot see when we will be able to reinstate the meetings at Napier Hall the usual yearly January OSGB auction will have to be delayed until we can meet in the hall. We will hold the usual zoom members meeting and a lecture in January instead.

Stay tuned for more details as we are still working on finalising as things change.

Dear all,

Members of the Orchid Society of Great Britain are invited to participate in a survey being conducted by the CITES team at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. The survey will gather insights into the trade in CITES-listed plant species, between UK traders and destinations within the EU. The results will build on previous assessments of CITES related trade, and enhance RBG Kew’s ability to provide continuing advice to Government departments and industry, both before and after the Transition Period.

The survey is open to both businesses and amateur growers, who may buy/sell/exchange CITES-listed specimens to and from EU Member States. Although there is no obligation to participate, all responses would be very welcome, and would enable RBG Kew to develop a more detailed picture of plant trade between the UK and the EU, which may help to inform future policy decisions in this area.

Responses are submitted anonymously and will be treated as confidential. Further information on Kew’s Privacy Policy is available here:

If you would like to participate, please access the survey online using the following link:

Please also feel free to share the link with other businesses or individuals, who may be interested in submitting a response.

If you have any questions or require any further information, please get in touch with the Kew CITES Team, at

Dear all,

The results of the Table Show are now published on the corresponding page.

You will notice we have decided to make a little amandment to our judging classes. With the amount of Bulbophyllums grown within the society we have now seperated it into it's own class.

Thank you for your continous interest in participating.
