We have had a wonderful day at the Devon Show. We would like to thank the organisers from the Devon orchid Society, Sara and the team at Burnham Nurseries, all our orchid friends for making the day enjoyable and, most of all, the wonderful Writhlington/Mendip team made up of students Ed, Kate and Izzy (with their trophy’s above), our fantastic volunteers Agnes, Zoe, and parent helpers Sarah and Stephanie.
Our trophies were for Best Laelineae – Encyclia polardiana (Below)
Best Phalaenopsis – Phalaenopsis cornu-cervi
as well as winning three other ‘Best in Class’ and five awards of merit. Pleurothallis sonderana (below) won best in class for both Pleurothallidinae species and Miniature species or hybrid.
We really enjoyed the day which flew by. We hope that all the plants purchased are happy in their new homes, please check out our species information page to find out more about your orchids.
