Anxious bud watching
We are excited to be taking part in the RHS Orchid Show next week (25th-27th March) at Wisley, especially since the shows in 2020 and 2021 were cancelled for Covid. It means that this year’s student show team are new to big shows and are learning about the anxious anticipation of spotting which plants will make it to the display in perfect flowering condition, and which will either still be in bud or have gone over.
Our specimen Dendrobium thyrsiflorum is looking good (above) and will hopefully be joined by lots of other Dendrobiums including Dendrobium aphyllum below (buds hopefully opening early next week)
… and Coelogyne holochila – fingers crossed 🙂 – I will let you know what happens.
Can I wish happy bud watching to all those planning orchid displays this spring.
