We have made it – 365 different Orchid species
Our Orchid club have spent an entire year blogging about some of the most spectacular Orchids in the world, grown from our very own greenhouses. This year saw over 33,000 visits to the Orchid website, as well as a tremendous numbers of new followers on Twitter and Facebook.
The man behind the scenes, Mr Simon Pugh Jones, MBE commented:
365 days has been great for the orchid project as we now have a really good data base of our orchids, we have students that have developed research skills, photographic skills and a whole lot of knowledge – a book maybe? It was also lovely at Orchid Christmas that our visitors could ask if we had any plants of the plants they had been following all year.’
The blog has proved so successful that the orchid project have decided to continue a blog a day!
