Wild Orchid Summer

The UK is anticipating a wild orchid summer. With 50 fascinating British species, The Independent has blooming schedules and helpful info for finding orchids in the wild. The article has good photos, including shots of some European relations to the Epipactis and Orchis that I grow. The Wildlife Trusts, a conservation group, has more info online. Go to their Orchid Sites page to download “40 Places to See Orchids.” This colorful guide highlights nature reserves all over the UK.

Enjoy wild orchids if you find them, but take away only memories and photos. Never remove orchid species from the wild, or damage them in any way. It’s illegal, and it endangers the plants.
