The phals were £35 each for the sumatrana and the schileriana - still a bit pricey !

But still great plants !

We'll see what next year's show brings, but I'm told the one in Malvern blows this one out of the water, so maybe worth giving that one a try instead.

I've also heard Malvern is a good Show, too much of a hike for me for the few plants I have room for, maybe if I was just starting a collection it would be worth it, so I'll probably look out for a schilleriana mail order and delivered to my door instead (also avoiding the talons of Mrs. Wu !)

Definitely going to Malvern. Everyone says good things about it. The list of vendors is already on their website. Excited about seeing what Asendorfer and InCharm bring - multifloral paphs a go-go!

Just in case people were unaware, my Orchid Society is able to get massively discounted tickets at £8 per adult for any single day of the show. I assume that other OS's can also do so. I think the full price is £22.

I will be going for the first time :D

I pay full price as I am not a member of any orchid societies I do the orchids mum and dad do the rest of the show.

All I will say is phone signel is terrible at the malver show no matter what company your with.
