Seed sowing for year 7s

This afternoon the Mendip Propagation Lab was a hive of activity as the Orchid Project team sowed orchid seeds from recently harvested seed pods. Year 7s Naiya and Charlie learnt to sow seed for the first time and did a great job of doing this challenging work safely and accurately.

Seed sowed today included some of our favourite species including:

 Cymbidium devonianum

 Cymbidium tigrinum

 and Coelogyne barbata

Fingers crossed, seedlings will be available to buy in the summer of 2019
