Talk: The Mysterious World of Orchids

calendar29th Mar 2023, 10:45 am

Torquay Museum Society Lecture by Graham Sclater

The speaker and his family were nurserymen and market gardeners in Exeter as far back as the early 18th century. Graham will explain how the city was responsible for the introduction of orchids from around the world, and how they were hybridized to give us the beautiful flowers we can buy today.

Lectures are free of charge to Torquay Museum Society Members but the general public are also welcome to attend - £5 per ticket, payable on the door.
