There are some amazing flowers around but few can match Bulbophyllum Elizabeth Ann. Here is Heather with a real specimen of a plant carrying eighteen flower spikes!
A great big ‘Happy Birthday’ is in order today, to Simon Pugh-Jones!
Not only is Simon the teacher in charge of the Orchid Project, but is also the main source of enthusiasm behind everything we do! I hope you’ll join me in wishing him a very Happy Birthday!
It was during the Writhlington Orchid Festival that we realised just how much we loved opening up the greenhouses to the public. It was great fun and we decided that we need to do it more often – to give you a chance to see all of the orchids that we grow at school, and not just the few that happen to be in flower for a show!
This gave rise to our brand new ‘Upcoming Events‘ page! Every date you could possibly need, it’s basically your one-stop for orchid events at Writhington (and further afield).
Thanks to all the people who came to the talk at Bristol Univeristy, hope you had a brilliant time listening. If any one has any queries on how to grow thier orchids, please contact us and we will be happy to help!
Regards- Writhlington Orchid Project.
We certainly had great fun at the orchid festival, and from your feedback, so did you! You can now re-live the event with the following photos taken at the event by our resident photographer – Luke Shackleton.
