A detour to meet some dead plants

We have made it as far as London.  We have met with our forth team member Lauren and will be heading to the airport very soon. Lauren took us to see the Kew Herbarium where she works. It is the worlds biggest collection of dead plants …wow! In the photo you can see us looking at one of them. To find out more about the Kew Herbarium you could check the website.

We are go for Durban!

Well, this is it!  Zoe, Zoe and Simon are en-route meaning we are officially in expedition-blogging-mode!  Remember that here is the best place to be for up-to-date information about the expedition, including photos etc.

While in Durban, the team will also be blogging to the RHS Blogs so be sure to check both.  If that’s too much work, however, and you subscribe to our RSS or E-mail Updates, then never fear! For every update to the RHS Blogs will also be put here!

Durban Approaches!

The orchid project expedition to Durban, South Africa and the BGCI is now fast approaching!  Zoe and Zoe, along with Simon and Dr Lauren Gardiner (who you may remember from our Sikkim expedition) are flying out this Friday (30th).

During this period the team out there will be taking over my job of blogging – meaning that here is the one and only place to get all of the up-to-date information, along with what their doing and photos uploaded straight from the conference!

As always, comments are not only welcome, but encouraged on all posts we make – but particularly about the live expedition posts.  We’ve been having some problems with spam – so do-not fret if your comment isn’t live right away!
