This week in the green houses we are weeding, tidying up and making the green house a nicer place to be. Look out for use on the green cams and watch our progress.
Simon Pugh-Jones shows how science at KS4 is rooted in the traditional skills, practical work, books and interaction with professional scientists. A great introduction to how the orchid project has influenced the curriculum at Writhlington school.

All this week we are moving plants to different sections to speed up or slow down the growth of flowers. This is because we want as many plants in flower as we can for the RHS London international orchid show. This is going to be our biggest London yet.
We have just begun our training as the new web development people, with great success. We are going to be publishing like there’s no tomorrow so keep your eyes peeled for Orchids galore.
We had much excitement yesterday when a box arrived for us, full of labels and multi-coloured carbon tape for our label printer. This meant that we could put into action one of our plans for this year’s London orchid show:
With every orchid geographically positioned in it’s relavent section in the greenhouse, it seems sensible to give it a label telling you, when you buy it, where it came from! This means that whenever you buy a plant from us now, it will have a third label in (as well as the price and name labels). This one will tell you where your plant comes from, where in the greenhouse we grow it, and how we keep that section. Neat huh?
