Is there life out there on the forum ?

09 Apr 2015

Posted by David Ahrens in Carnivorous Plant Societies

I was speaking to a friend the other day and we are both very surprised how little interest there has been in the ICPS conference. People are always complaining that nothing goes on especially up north and when  a mega event like this happens very few people are interested..

Or is it because so much flaming goes on that people are reluctant to post any more.

North of England Orchid Society monthly show

05 Apr 2015

Posted by manders in Open Days & Events
I hope this appropriate to place this here?

I know many of you out there are also orchid growers as well as CPs, so if anyone is located in the North of England, we have regular monthly meetings to display plants and enter competitions and its a great chance to socialise with other growers and swap plants etc...

Also several members are also carnivorous plant growers so there's some opportunity to talk cps too.

The North of England orchid society is one of, if not the, oldest orchid society in the world and there is a wealth of orchid growing experience to tap into, not to mention the occasional rare beauty going for knocked down prices in the auctions. Where else could you get a Paphiopedilum Rothschildianum for 30£?

Many societies are dwindling these days and need your support, so if you've felt like joining one, or are just curious to pop allong, then now is the time!

The monthly meetings are free to enter, there are orchid sellers there at very reasonable prices and they take place at three locations around the North of England, Warrington (Rixton), Barton Vilage and Hale Village.


If your not sure and want ask anything please feel free to send me a message.

The next show is May 2nd at Barton Village Hall.

Mike King's open day, 27th of June 2015

05 Mar 2015

Posted by Mike King in Open Days & Events
Hi everyone,
With just over 3 months to go, I would like to invite you to my open day.

This year, I have conducted a massive 300 plant peat-free trial after the success of some plants trialed last year. Further more, I have further refined the collection and separated the lower growing hybrids away from the taller ones. The date is a few weeks later so you can the plants in peak colour.

As normal, there will be plants for sales, refreshments and you are welcome to bring plants for sale and swap.If some of you are arriving on the Friday like some are, we can go and visit some other collections, like Chester zoo which has a national collection of Nepenthes just over 1 hour from here.

Please let me know if you intend to come and we can gauge how much refreshments to get in.
