This is the one and only Heather Limond. She is our only ginger member of the team and it wouldn’t be the same without her. This is a Dendrobium delicatum which we hope to see and smell out there.
The count down begins. It is 2 days and 20 hours until we say farewell to the UK. I am Zoe Barnes one of the seven students going on this amazing trip to the Himalayas. The Coelogyne cristata next to me should be out in full flower when we are there.
As you can see, greenhouse club are celebrating several awards at the South West Orchid Show. These include best in class for this Coelogyne cristata and Cymbidium erythreaum. We now have a great year 7 and 8 team and in this picture is Aaron, Lydia, Megan, Finlay, George, Matthew, Fabian, Emily, Kayleigh, Kristen, Joshua, Elliott, Otta, Laura, Danielle, Lexie, James and Caitlin.
We are at the South west orchid show show we set up a display and then helped with judging the plants. We will let you know what we won.
The team is back in the UK a little tired but eager to share our amazing experiences. I hope that you have enjoyed the Rwanda blog. We have had record numbers visiting the website over the last week. If you want to know more about our trip, our next open morning with plant sales, tours and short talks on Rwanda is on Saturday 9th March from 10am until 1 pm.
