So exciting!

One of my Cypripedium orchids has started to poke its nose up in the glasshouse.

These orchids are hardy if given correct conditions but, for the moment, I am growing them in the cold greenhouse.

Very hairy leaf. It must help to keep them warm?

Rachel Rachel 27 March 2011 17:54:00

They are deciduous, Jacinta. So, no!
