Hardy British orchids

I would like to try and grow some . I have a nice sunny spot with low fertility. Our soil is clay and fairly acid, however. I am told the best option is for dry. sandy, chalky soil but if your conditions are unsuitable grow them in a pot and plunge it in the ground. Has anyone tried this method? Is the best genus Dactylorhiza?
Everyone likes butterflies. Nobody likes caterpillars.
i know they are not rare but I find they are a delight when the green spear hear pushes through and the purple flowers appear. I guess they also seed themselves in my garden now. Haven't found any growing in the garden though.
