Isn’t it strange that the North of England was so instrumental in furthering the interest on these exotic plants. How did that come about?
Many orchids were brought back from tropical climbs as many of the wealthy had vested interests in the clipper ships docking at Liverpool and plants found their way into orchid houses, such as Chatsworth House in Derbyshire and Tatton Park in Cheshire and around Liverpool too!
In those days only the very wealthy could afford to run the green houses and hot houses within which orchids arriving from faraway places could be kept alive.
The society was initially called the Manchester Orchid Society and held their fortnightly meetings in the Coal Exchange. Orchidists from all over the Northwest would bring their plants to be admired and judged for an award from our society;
