For the first time ever, we’re going to be at RHS Chelsea Flower Show this year to spread the word about orchid care and education.
We’ll be showcasing orchids in their natural environment and sharing stories about their history and cultivation through to modern growing practices. Our experts will be on hand to offer advice for looking after a Phalaenopsis orchid and you’ll be able to pick their brains for handy care tips.
Some of the highlights of our display include a breath taking living rainforest walkway covered with over 2,000 orchids. This stunning display has taken 6 months of planning and has been put together by a team of 19 people over the course of 6 days. Designed by Lynne Dallas, we hope that it will draw visitors in to learn more about the beautiful and complex Phalaenopsis family.
The exhibit will contain 4 zones with separate sections including:
• ‘Art of the Possible’ – A beautiful showcase of hundreds of white orchids in an array different shapes and sizes
• ‘History of Phalaenopsis’ – Visitors can discover the world of the brave plant hunters of the past, learn about the craze that came to be known as ‘Orchiddelirium’ and hear how Victorians came to be so obsessed with orchids
• ‘Discovery & Education’ – Set in a greenhouse, this zone brings to life commercial orchid production and modern growing practices with the help of a specially made film for RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Visitors will learn about computer-controlled air, light and water levels and how this helps us to produce perfect orchids time and time and again
• ‘Home Zone’ – Here visitors will be able to learn how to care for Phalaenopsis orchids and our team of experts will be on hand to give tips and advice
Visitors to our stand will also have a chance to win an orchid and a tour of our nursery by taking a photo in our selfie booth surrounded by a mass of beautiful blooms and uploading it to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
