There was a chance to explore, discuss and buy unusual orchid plants, outdoor terrestrials, as well as indoor varieties.

Show organiser Roger Gore-Rowe said: “We had a really good show and we had around 120 people come through the door on the day.

“There was a wide-range of species and Hybrid orchids on show and everyone who came went away happy.

“We are still working out how much was made but we are in profit for the day.
