Merry Christmas All!
Well, the time has come once again for me to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! And what a year it’s been!
This year, among other things, saw us move over to our brand new greenhouses! Since moving over at easter, we’ve been spending most of the time organising all of our plants into their correct climate zones; Cool Asia, Warm Asia, Cool America, Warm America and Temperate Sub-Tropical. You can see what’s going on in all of our sections from our webcams.
This year also saw the first Writhlington Autumn Orchid Festival (given the acronym ‘WAOF’) which was enjoyed by all. We filled the school with orchid societies, the dining room with food and the greenhouses with people. We also held lectures in our brand new theatre (which, as some of you may remember, I learnt I cant tech and lecture at the same time in!)
If you missed the festival this year, join us for WAOF11 taking place on the 17th September 2011. You can also join us for a similar event in March. The London Show Preview will be on the 12th March.
Remember, we’re not done yet! Join us tomorrow evening (Thursday 16th December) for ‘Christmas Orchids‘, an evening of Orchids, refreshments and music. Entry is £2 on the door, running from 7-9pm. See you there!
