The twentieth annual Weekend Orchid Fair will be held at Glasgow Botanic Gardens on Saturday May 6th and Sunday May 7th.
Entry to this popular event is free and open from 10am until 5pm.
Specialist orchid nurseries will be tempting you with their exquisite flowers and plants and offering advice on how to keep them should you need it.
The Scottish Orchid Society are putting on a display and giving talks and practical demonstrations.
The Main Range of glasshouses will be open as usual each day for visitors to enjoy the extensive tropical plant displays including Glasgow’s municipal orchid collection.
The Friends of Glasgow Botanic Gardens are funding, through the earlier generous legacy by the late Maureen Bell, a new outdoor classroom.
We were also fortunate in obtaining funding from the “Tesc0 Bags Scheme” and the Incorporation of Gardeners of Glasgow
In the refurbished Fern Garden just to the West of the Main Range it will include seating for 50 people, access for those with a disability and a central small performance area to be used by the teachers and Louise the Gardens Education officer. It will also be used as a small events area.
