Top Orchid
The Society's Journal

Our own in-house journal, Top Orchid, is normally produced three times a year.  Members receive a copy as a part of their membership - electronicly by email for the great majority, or as a printed copy for the few without email.

With the aim of keeping members "in touch", particularly those who are unable to attend meetings very often, each issue includes a summary of all meetings held since the previous issue - brief synopses of lectures, full reports of Shows, etc.  Also included is information on future meetings and other events, significant news of members, plus short articles supplied by members.  Where possible, articles and reports are illustrated with full colour photographs.

Top Orchid was developed over many years as a labour of love by its "founding editor", Allan Burdis, who slaved for hours over a hot keyboard to create a very professional publication much valued by all members.

During 2019 Allan passed the torch to Roger Frampton, who as the new editor will now take on Allan's regular battles to gather enough material to fill each issue.  Members are therefore urged to join in and offer articles for publication - just email him at , or have a word with him at the next meeting.

Recent editions of Top Orchid are available on-line here

Editions published during the past year are excluded, as they are available only to members in the private Members' Area . . . one of the benefits of paying a subscription!

For earlier editions, just click on the appropriate arrow button below.  The files are quite large - usually over 2Mb - so please be patient and give them time to download if your internet connection is slow.
