New Orchid House Opening
Saturday, May 21, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Tom is often referred to as the orchid man and has been passionate about these rare beauties since the age of 7, inspired by his late granny. 2016 sees his dreams turn into reality, with the opening of his very own Orchid house on Saturday the 21st May!
Visitors will be able to experience around 200 varieties of temperate orchids (10-15 degrees) and a selection of tropical fruits. Located at the back of the popular cloud garden, the house is well under way!
Mostly species from the wild, visitors will see orchids in their natural environment from ‘cloud forests’ such as Colombia, Panama and the Himalayas including rare trees, shrubs and vines found at high altitudes.
om is delighted to announce that leading gardening expert and World Garden mentor Jim Buttress will officially open the Orchid house on the 21st May at 1pm.
