Well done to Hannah, Laura and Issy for putting up a wonderful display at the Devon Orchid Show.
The show is going well with a chance to meet lots of plant enthusiasts.
The girls are celebrating winning Nest in Show for their remarkable orchid Trichotosia ferox. The plant is 10feet from tip to toe and covered in unusual hairy leaves as well as the pretty small flowers. The flowers are very fragrant but the smell is a bit musty.
Our dendrobium is blooming. Native to southern China, the eastern Himalayas, Vietnam, Thailand, Laos and Bhutan. Isn’t it sweet.
It’s great to see Zoe’s in a lab in Peru. Especially as we are starting our lab week here. This means we are seed sowing, re-plating and media making. Soon the world will be full of new baby Orchids.
I am traveling South America at the moment and, along with other places, Peru. While out here I couldn’t miss the opportunity to visit Peru floras lab and nursery. I really enjoyed seeing there methods and techniques. Thank you Manolo and his team for showing me around.
Well done to Tallis, Martha, Chloe and Jess for a brilliant display at the Bristol and West of England Show. The show is a great event with lots of lovely orchids on the Society displays.
The girls gave won several awards including Best Coelogyne, Best Bulbophyllun and our Oerstedella centrapetala won best Cattleya, best Species and Grand Champion plant.
