Hardy Orchid Society Newsletter

1996 to 2003


In these early issues it was the custom to summarize some of the talks presented at the HOS Meetings. In the following indices these are attributed to the speaker but are indicated by an asterisk. Also, the listings include all of the potentially interesting articles and contributions but a significant number of announcements and future programme details that are no longer of relevance have been omitted.
