    No idea, Joyce, but I doubt they’ll be reached this year.

    Here’s what the good old RHS has to say, though they only mention temperature and don’t take wind speeds into account.

    Cymbidiums are beautiful orchids but are native to a very different climate, SE Asia. They are only truly happy outdoors in UK during the warmer months, June to mid-October. However, thay can be gown in full sun during this period, provided the contrast in sun exposure is not too great.

    Inglezinho, Thanks.  No danger of too much sun exposure up here.
