A new sign

I only popped into school today to do some tidying, but this caught my eye: Our sign has arrived! As you can see, it stands tall and in pride of place next to the glasshouses. We also have signs across the rest of the campus, directing people to ‘The Orchid Project’, meaning people getting lost while looking for us at open days should be a thing of the past!

Our new sign!


Eden project

Happen to be at the Eden project today? Well we’re based in the hot tropical biome all day – pop by and say hello. For those not lucky enough to be down here, I’m making use of modern technology and tweeting! Head on over to twitter and follow us @WSBEorchids

For those of you not on twitter, you can still get these updates from us! Head over and have a gander!


Kew Gardens

This friday we have the people from Kew Gardens coming back. This time they are showing us something because last time we showed them our greenhouses and our microprop techniques. keep watching because we will post up what happens


Back to School

We’re back at school properly now after the Easter Break and are launching straight back to work.  We’re preparing for our big open day for garden societies, where we will be trialling some more methods for this years Orchid Festival.  If all goes to plan, it’s going to be good!

Also we’re entering that infamous exam season. *Dramatic music*  This is the point where all of the year 11s, 12s, 13s and most of the year 10s, disappear under a seemingly never ending pile of revision, coursework catch-up and late night cramming.  During this time, expect to hear more from some of our younger bloggers, who like nothing more than to share what’s happening in the greenhouse with their plant group.
