Welcome to a new orchid growing season. May we also welcome Bill Haldane who kindly offered to take up the chairmanship for the next three years! I hope that he enjoys his term of office and that nothing unexpected happens-always the worst thing.
He was elected at the AGM in June. It was a really good meeting for Bill because his plant, a spectacular if understated Neofinetia falcata, won the experts table again.
