Just 19 days until the next Writhlington Orchid Festival. We have visiting societies (Devon, South West, Bristol, Cornwall and Somerset/Dorset & Wilts) and trade (Chantelle Orchids) all set to go as well as tours of the greenhouses, a Phalaenopsis potting service, talks and refreshments. Book the date and tell your friends – see you there.
Another amazing day at Hampton Court thanks to the wonderful students of the Orchid Project. If you gave missed us at the show a date for your diary is September 10th when we hold our next open day and orchid festival at the school.
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.
