About Glasgow Botanic Gardens Orchid Fair

Scotland’s only annual orchid show and fair returns for it’s 25th year to the Glasgow Botanic Gardens, on May 11th and 12th 2024, promising a botanical feast for the senses and a unique opportunity to buy these wonderful plants to grow at home.

Held in the beautiful and historic Kibble Palace glasshouse in the Gardens, with the support of the Scottish Orchid Society and the Friends of Glasgow Botanic Gardens, there will be displays of flowering tropical orchids by regional orchid societies.

Alongside displays of flowering orchids, there will be educational stands with cultural advice and other information - all you need to know about these intriguing wonders of nature. Members of the Scottish Orchid Society will be on hand and delighted to answer any questions from budding orchid enthusiasts.

Orchids and rarely available tropical plants, along with accessories and supplies to grow them, will be on sale from highly reputable and ethical British orchid nurseries and traders.

Entry to the Glasgow Botanic Gardens and the Orchid Fair is free of charge so why not come along for a few hours’ tropical escape, right in the heart of Glasgow’s west-end?
