Amazing orchids at the European Orchid Show

Today we want to bring you some of the highlights of this brilliant show and the Orchid Project team will scour the exhibition centre to find some really interesting plants and stories.

There are lots of great displays from all over Europe and this is some of the team from Denmark. They will be hosting the next European Orchid Show in 2021 – we will be there!

This is the winner of Best Hybrid – Dendrobium x delicatum which is a natural hybrid found in Australia.

Also from Australia is Cymbidium madidum and this fine specimen won Best Cymbidium.

…and what orchid has Chloe found in that bag? It isn’t an orchid it is a slow worm we spotted escaping from the display moss on the Ecuagenera stand (the moss is European). It must have been hibernating and is now back in the cold van for a journey back to its home.

    It sounds like you had a lovely interesting day today. You all must be getting really tired by now. I hope you enjoy tomorrow and have a safe journey home.
