SA Native Orchids

Start With The Leaves owes its origins to the author’s interest in terrestrial orchids after he joined the Native Orchid Society of South Australia (NOSSA).  He learnt a lot about orchids from various field trips arranged by NOSSA.

Available from NOSSA is South Australia’s Native Orchids, a DVD-ROM which is a complete guide to all orchids found in South Australia.

The retail price for South Australia’s Native Orchids is $25.00 and postage and handling is $3.00. (Prices are in Australian dollars)

It is available by visiting NOSSA’s website or by emailing
