Last year (May 2019) I discovered a tiny flower head of an orchid that had naturally established itself in my front lawn. It didn’t take me long to identify it as a Common Spotted Orchid. By mid June it was in flower.
I put up a small group of sticks and string around the plant to give it at least some protection and too my surprise it flowered successfully and seemed quite at home.
Amazingly, the plant has grown again this year and it is even better, so I’ve been keeping it well watered and even breaking up eggshell and placing it round the base and general area where it is growing. I’m hoping this year I might get some seeds from it and a few more plants may appear next year.
