Orchid Alchemy offers a wide range of orchid species and hybrids giving an exciting choice for people who are looking for something beyond the limited varieties available in the high street and local garden centres.

We ethically source orchid seed from around the world and produce some from our own extensive collection. Some of our varieties will not be available anywhere else within Europe. We raise the majority of our orchids from seed and the remainder are divisions from our stock plants. Our seed raised plants are very vigorous and quickly reach flowering size. 

We also have smaller numbers of other varieties not listed on our website and we are continuously propagating new species and hybrids. Therefore, if you can't find what you're looking for please contact us.

As many of the species listed on this website are new to us we do not have photos of some of the flowers. However, if you enter the species name into a search engine and select  "images" you will be able to find pictures of the flowers.

We hope you enjoy browsing our store.

Covid 19 update;

As the postal services are still working effectively we are still able to process orders and send plants safely within the UK, other EU countries will be assessed on an individual basis.



Tropical Orchids 

Our range of tropical orchids reflects the diversity of the family. It includes many popular genera such as Angraecum, Cattleya, Dendrobium and Encyclia plus many others. We have selected forms of popular species and many with captivating fragrances. Some are flowering size and some keep you in suspense for a couple of years before they reveal their beauty.




Terrestrial Temperate Orchids 

A lot of time and effort has been put into developing techniques to grow temperate terrestrial orchids. It is a relatively new area but has enormous potential and gives us the opportunity to grow our favourite group of plants beyond the confines of our heated greenhouses. At present, we have a limited number of species available but we have lots in the pipeline.



 Seed sowing service

We offer a seed sowing service for both epiphytic and terrestrial orchids. Please contact us if you wish to donate seed of a special orchid or if you would like to have young plants for yourself or your friends. You can also make your own exciting hybrids that you can name.
