Common Spotted-Orchid (Dactylorhiza fuchsii)

The Common spotted-orchid, Dactylorhiza fuchsii, is found across most of the UK. It is the least fussy of our native British orchids, growing in a wide range of situations and soil types. If you were to pick one orchid to introduce into your garden or meadow, this would be the easiest to start with. They're good in borders and pots too. The orchid's rosette of leaves appears in spring and is followed by flowering and then seed setting. The whole plant dies back in early autumn and is dormant through the winter. Plant out in their final positions at the beginning or end of the dormancy period i.e. early autumn or early spring.

It's very difficult to produce orchids. Their seeds are tiny and wind blown, and in the wild they need to have a symbiotic fungal partner to germinate and grow. From seed to plant takes years! Once our specialist orchid whisperer has done all the hard work, however, they're easy to grow on.
