The Teddington Gardener

Orchidology

Now I don’t have all of their names, these orchids on show in the Glasshouse at RHS Wisley and if you want to know, then I shall of course try and find out more and add them where I can. But I need to stretch my legs and get a breath of fresh air (if damp and chill). So this folks, is it!

I have several books to read on these tropical fireworks and when I’ve finished them, then you might get more!

In the meantime –

A note for your diary, the Orchid Festival at Kew Gardens starts on the 4th February through until 5th March. It has been an extravaganza in years past. Take a look –
