Our New Labels!

You voted, you commented, we listened, and we now have our new label design!  It’s all very exciting for us, particularly because we got to use the laser cutter again.  (The most awesome use of ‘file – print’ there is!)

The Laser Cutter, Cutting Labels!

We’re going to wait until it’s light, position the labels in front of some appropriate plants, and show them off to you in their full glory tomorrow!  They do look good!


Label Poll

We’ve been playing around with the laser cutter at school, and have come up with two potential designs for all of the labels we’ll use at shows in the future. (or until we come up with a better one!) We have come up with a dilema though, we can’t decide which is best.

Please give us a hand by voting for your favourite below! You can click on the images to enlarge them.


Greenhouses at Night

We made a very interesting discovery last open evening:  The greenhouses look excellent when lit up at night!  We liked it so much that we regularly work late into the hours of darkness, and are opening the greenhouses up to the public in December for a special, evening gathering in our lovely, lit up greenhouses.

The Greenhouses at Night

The ‘Christmas Orchids’ event, as we’re calling it, will be your chance to have a look at the orchids with a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie!  The event will be on Thursday 16th December from 7 – 9 PM.  Full details can be found here.


School Production

Writhlington School is not just famous for Orchids!  Anyone who came to the Orchid Festival back in September will remember that we have an awesome new theatre.  This theatre is really going to come into it’s own when it’s used in a couple of weeks for the school’s production of My Fair Lady:

We are delighted to announce that tickets are now on sale, and can be purchased by calling the Box Office on 07779061067.
