Welcome to the British Orchid Council Website.

The British Orchid Council (BOC), Registered Charity No. 1002945, was founded in 1971 to represent organisations nationwide with any interest or involvement in promoting orchid cultivation or conservation.

Member organisations nominate Delegates who elect a small Executive Committee to act as Trustees and ensure that day to day matters are dealt with in accordance with the written Constitution. Special interest Working Groups are formed that come together at Delegate meetings offering ideas which stimulate discussion to ensure BOC activities are always relevant to developments in the orchid world.

In fulfilment of its Charitable status the BOC provides a wide range of services both to member organisations and to the general public. Key services include maintaining internationally recognised training and judging accreditation, and representation at national and international committee level.

Further information about the BOC and its activities can be found under "About Us".

Covid-19 Virtual Orchid Congress 2020

The Coronavirus has deprived our members
of the opportunity to exhibit their orchids at
competeitive shows and major events like
The Southport Congress
(see revised in formation on the adjacent panel)
and The Malvern Show.

The BOC has attempted to compensate a little
by organising an online show where
members (and others) have submited images of their
orchids that would normally have been exhibited
at a show in the period from April until June 2020.

Details and results can be found at
Covid-19 Virtual Orchid Congress
and in the Bulletins menu.
