Reminder that there is the first meeting of the Bedfordshire Orchid Group at haynes mission Hall tonight (Wednesday 30th January) at 7.30.

An interesting link to orchid conservation is the work being done at Kew with the Sainsbury Orchid Conservation Project

Many orchid populations are declining and some are so few that it is thought that pollinators are no longer attracted to them.Seeds of orchids are being grown and plants put back out into nature reserves to boost numbers.
