OverviewThe Section 'Affiliates' provides contact details for Groups and Affiliated Societies of the OSGB. In addition: 'We hold monthly meetings for those members who are able to come to London on a Saturday afternoon. Each meeting is different. There is usually an experienced speaker who may talk about travel, cultivation or any other subject related to orchids. Members bring their plants to display at the monthly table show which offers a chance to see a wide variety of orchids in flower. The plants are judged and awarded and there is a short discussion about their history, cultivation and merits ... Tea and coffee are available and members have a chance to chat with the each other and the guest speaker and ask the questions that have been bothering them for ages. "Why won’t my Phalaenopsis flower?" is the most common; no question is too silly to ask ...'
