Today the Judging commenced at the Chelsea flower show where the orchid project won a Gold award. Currently no word has filtered back from London as to which category we won in, but updates will soon follow as word comes through!
Just received correspondence from the Chelsea set up team! They inform me that the flow cabinet is up and in place as are the prayer flags that surround our display. Technology and plants go on tomorrow.
I don’t know about you, but this news makes me even more eager to get up there and see it! I’m going up with my camera on Tuesday. Look forward to providing photos then!
That’s it then. The van’s packed, the trailer is packed and we’re all ready for a busy, fun and hopefully profitable week at Chelsea.
If you are lucky enough to be coming to Chelsea then we look forward to seeing you there! If not, you can get up-to-date information all week, right here!
The chelsea countown begins! Well, we’ve been preparing for a long time, but it’s really close when the count down is in single figures!
The design team have come up with a brilliant design for the display that should be as good as ever, maybe even better. The lab team have now got several piles of seedlings for sale at chelsea including Cymbidium whitea – our flagship species in Sikkim. There should be a full list here by the end of the week.
It’s all go from here!
We’re all back and completely jet lagged (or possible just tired), dehydrated (airline food) and in agreement that this was the most amazing expedition yet!
I apologise that I couldn’t update while out there but there wasn’t even the faintest sign of internet access at most places we went. I will however upload lots of pictures and information about what we did to the Sikkim page. I also took some video clips, so when they have been made into a video presentation-like thing I’ll upload that to the media library.
And I thought I had a quiet week-end ahead!
