Well done to Hannah, Laura and Issy for putting up a wonderful display at the Devon Orchid Show.
The show is going well with a chance to meet lots of plant enthusiasts.
The girls are celebrating winning Nest in Show for their remarkable orchid Trichotosia ferox. The plant is 10feet from tip to toe and covered in unusual hairy leaves as well as the pretty small flowers. The flowers are very fragrant but the smell is a bit musty.

I am traveling South America at the moment and, along with other places, Peru. While out here I couldn’t miss the opportunity to visit Peru floras lab and nursery. I really enjoyed seeing there methods and techniques. Thank you Manolo and his team for showing me around.
