About Suffolk Orchid Society

The Suffolk Orchid Society was founded on September 5th 1981 when 10 growers met at the Oddfellows Hall in Ipswich and is still going strong today. The membership was at first very small with sometimes only ten or a dozen attending for meetings. Thanks in part to the Society putting on displays at garden centres and flower shows the membership gradually increased to its present level.


What We Do

We hold regular meetings with different themes, hold monthly competitions for best growers, as well as hosting and attending a number of annual events to showcase orchids from our society.

Monthly Meetings

The meetings have always been held during the September to May period and it is only in recent years that we have had enough growers and therefore plants to stage a show of our own, usually in March.

Events

We began showing our plants in the mid-eighties at the Ipswich Flower Show. Today, we mount a stand at the Suffolk Show which is always a great success and has become an annual event.
