A lovely orchid nursery offering a wide range of plants for enthusiasts of all levels. The nursery is well worth a visit, particularly for those who enjoy hunting for something a bit different. Normal opening is Monday - Thursday, 9:00 - 5:00 pm, but there are special open weekends for orchid lovers, which we will list on the events page. A great place for catching up with old friends, making new ones, and benefitting from Laurence's wealth of experience. Laurence Hobbs Orchids also regularly imports cattleyas from Carter & Holmes in the USA. Whatever your orchid interests, it is well worth asking to be included on their mailing list.
