Congratulations to Emily and Jacob for a wonderful display at the Devon Orchid Show. Highlights include the blue Vanda coerulea (winner of the Vanda Cup), Cymbidium aliofolium (Best Cymbidium Species), Coelogyne mossiae (Best any other species) and eight awards of merit.
Thanks also to our friends at the Devon Orchid Society for putting on a lovely show.
Sales have been brisk which will help with our funds for the Rwanda trip in July.
The Writhlington Orchid Projects top grower, Jacob Coles, has reached the finals of Young Gardener of the Year. The competition is organised each year by the Royal Horticultural Society and Jacob is joined in the finals by twelve other top young gardeners from across the UK.
Jacob has been awarded a video camera as a prize and will be using this over the next two weeks to make a film about his gardening which will be featured on the RHS website.
The winner will be announced on the 20th of June.
As the show comes to a close, we are all glowing with the success of our silver gilt
