Science in Action

Harvey has been working closely with The Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew as part of his Level 3 Applied Science studies at Mendip Studio School. He has been trained in advanced propagation techniques and is the first person to successfully raise Trias oblonga from seed.


Mendip Studio School students are supporting the Mayanmar conservation project that supplied the seed by developing germination protocols based on Harvey’s work.


It is hoped that this work will help protect this orchid from the illegal and unsustainable wild collection it is currently subjected to.
