Visitor Boom to see Orchids in Bloom


Thousands of people are expected to attend Glasgow’s 22nd annual Orchid Fair this weekend (Saturday May 11 and Sunday May 12).

Celebrating all things orchid, the free event will take place in the Kibble Palace glasshouse at Glasgow’s Botanic Gardens. Doors open from 10am-6pm on Saturday and 10am – 5pm on Sunday.


Specialist orchid nurseries will display and sell exquisite orchid plants in flower and offer advice on how to keep them.

The Scottish Orchid Society and the Orchid Society of North East England will also put on stunning displays and be on hand to provide cultivation tips.

In addition, the Glasgow Branch of the British Cactus and Succulent Society will have on display a range of plants to admire and purchase.

Ewen Donaldson, General Manager of Glasgow Botanic Gardens, said: “Our annual Orchid Fair is always a very popular event with the public who enjoy seeing the many varieties of plants on display.  Orchids have a reputation of being difficult to care for but if you learn a few tricks of the trade, even a beginner will be able to keep them looking good.”

The Orchid Fair will be set up on the Friday afternoon.  Doors open at 10am on Saturday and Sunday.  For those who can’t wait until then, there is a permanent collection of orchids at the Botanic Gardens to admire any day of the year.
