Introducing the Essex Orchid Society

STOP PRESS! Due to Coronavirus restrictions, we have cancelled our monthly meetings until further notice. Check here for news of future meetings nearer the time.

Special Lockdown Orchid Show

As we can't have real orchid shows at the moment, we've created a page on the website to show off some of the plants that might have been exhibited. Hopefully we will add to this online show as the season progresses. You can find the online show here: Online Show...

Growing Orchids

Have you ever thought about growing orchids? Do you have one and would like to learn more about this fascinating group of plants? Why not join our friendly group? With members interested in many different types of orchids, from novices to experts, you will be sure to find someone who will help you get started with the type of orchids that you like best. You don't need a greenhouse; many of our members grow at least some of their plants on a windowsill. If you prefer hardy orchids talk to us about growing in the garden or in cold frames.

 

 

Meetings

The Society meets once a month from September through to June (except December), usually on the second Saturday of the month, at South Green Memorial Hall, Billericay, CM11 2PR. The Hall is open from 1.30pm with the meeting running from 2.00 until 4.00pm. We endeavour to offer speakers on a wide range of orchid related topics. Additionally, at some meetings, sales of plants and orchid sundries are offered by an invited nursery. You can see all the details of our 2019/20 programme here: Meetings...

Shows

The Society holds two shows each year; in November and May, also at South Green Memorial Hall. You can find more details here: Shows... Additionally, there is a Show bench at every meeting.

Further details for all our activities can be obtained from the Secretary - contact SecretaryEOS@outlook.com...
