On Tuesday we were joined on our stand by Wendy and Matt from the Bristol Aquarium. As well as working hard to explain the Orchid Project to the public Wendy and Matt spent time discussing future orchid initiatives at the aquarium with our team and we are all looking forward to another exciting year of our partnership.
Our display at Hampton Court has been rewarded with an RHS Gold medal. Congratulations to the display team and also to today’s student team who have been busy explaining our project to an estimated 15 000 visitors.
After a long weekend the Orchid Project display is finished at Hampton Court. Well done to Jacob, Chloe, Emily and Annie for a stunning display with two islands of plants to show orchids from the warm tropics and cool tropics. The stand is being judged at the moment – news to follow.
A big thank you to the organisers of the International Orchid Show at Malvern, a great show and a chance to catch up with our orchid friends from the UK, Europe, the US and South America.
Well done to the display team, Issy, Jess, Charlotte and Jacob who won Best Trade Display as well as two Best in Class and three Merits.
Thanks as well to the students who came up over the weekend, the Buckle family for running things on Friday and our other volunteers, Annie, Katherine and Matt.
