In recent years (since I got the bug), my holidays have included orchid-hunting as a compulsory element! On a recent visit to Jersey, I came unstuck as by the end of a rather dry July, the wild orchid season on the island was pretty much over. Fortunately, the Eric Young Orchid Foundation was high on my list of places to visit, which did much to compensate:
The site is primarily a commercial nursery (with RHS Chelsea Flower show gold medals galore), but oddly, no plant sales (perhaps that’s a good thing ;-))
If you like orchids and you’re ever on Jersey, a must see.
