Wild Orchid's of East Surrey

Living close to the Chalk Downland of The North Downs makes country walks even more interesting when it is possible to discover the variety of Wild Orchid's that grow in the area.

I have been very lucky and have so far seen the following plants.

Common Spotted Orchid, Man Orchid, Bee Orchid, Birds Nest Orchid, Pyramidal Orchid, Fragrant Orchid, Twayblade, Greater Butterfly Orchid, Broad Leaved Heleborine, White Heleborine and the Violet Heleborine.
