The Orchid Review

December 2013

In this issue there are two articles on Cypripedium, one looking at the oldest known depiction of Cypripedium calceolus, the other explaining how to grow hybrids successfully. I celebrate the outstanding orchid displays seen at the Chelsea Flower Show, Hampton Court and Tatton Park, and Clare and Johan Hermans' report on the RHS Orchid Committee's study visit to three Dutch nurseries.
