The Orchadian
The December issue of the Orchadian has some very interesting articles for all Members. The Ira Butler awards for 2013 are included and congratulations to Henk van den Berg on his win in both the Ira Butler and the Bill Murdoch. Barrita Orchids have excelled in being awarded a number of AOC Awards recently and their Open Day is a must for growers wanting quality Sarcochilus, but you must get in early. A very interesting article on speciosum 'Windermere' by Graeme Russell will stir up Members memories with several interesting scenarios on where it was discovered.
