Some Links for you to try

These are a range of internet links that I have followed and found useful. I have arranged them into a range of categories. Do note - not all have to do with orchids!

If you would like to have your site linked from here, please contact me and I will see about it. Please note that I reserve the right to choose those I will include.

I hope that you will find them useful.

    Informative:

  • Aaron Hick's site: Very Nice!
  • Botana: Quite a trail of information. Offer a plant trades section.
  • European Orchids (especially Provence): Pierre-Michel Blais' magnificent site...
  • Gary Yong Gee: Homepage of the co-author of the Orchidopaedia project CD roms. His excellent photography is widely represented on this site.
  • A Garden Place: Glenn Bronner's site with a wealth of gardening information.
  • Greg Allikas, The O Zone: I don't just like this site because his name's also Greg ...
  • Jay Pfahl's Orchid Page: Good number of species and hybrids pictured.
  • Laeliinae reference: A good guide to this popular group. Can be slow to load.
  • Linda's Orchid Page: Plenty of interesting stuff here - including the award application/nomination forms.
  • Lois Greer's Site - Orchid photos, data, trivia.
  • NE NSW Orchid Species: Okay, it's my own, but it devoted to the presentation of Australian Species from the subtropical caost and hinterland of northern NSW. A must see for Aussie Orchid buffs...
  • Orchid List Digest Photo Exchange: For pictures of the plants in the OLD.
  • Orchids Australia: Considered by some (who may be biased!) to be the best English Language Orchid Journal in the world. Certainly worth the read!
  • Phalaenopsis site: Great pics of Phalaenopsis species
  • QLD Orchid Species Society: Claim to be the first society devoted entirely to orchid species. I dunno, it's a close call between them and Sydney's NSW SPECIES soc, but at least these guys have a website!...
  • Sanders Hybrid Checklist Searches: Great if you want to know what is the name of X x Y...
  • Stanhopea Pages: Ever wanted to know anything about this fascinating genus - look here...
