We had an amazing session today with the botanic garden staff where we taught them all how to sew orchid seed
Much to my excitement when we arrived there was a room with a laminar flow cabinet all ready to be set up, I was then given about 20 minutes to set it up.
We are spending 2 days at the cambridge university botanic gardens, working the the staff and local school students. Today we arrived and the first job we had to do was unload the mini buss of all the plants and lab equipment we brought.
March is the month to see the Writhlington Greenhouses at there absolute best and so we are pleased to invite you to this year’s spring open evening on 6th March.
As well as a chance to see wonderful orchids like our specimen Coelogyne cristata, shown above, there will be plants and books for sale, exhibitions of photographs featuring native British orchids and the spectacular orchids of Bosnia Herzegovina and of course yummy refreshments.
We are working with Dave and Amy from kent university to plan our display for the RHS London orchid show in April. This picture shows the layout of our display, but without the plants.
