Epipactis gigantea (June Blake's garden)
When we were at Mary and Paddy's today, a plant package arrived for them and we all got almost as much pleasure from watching them open it as they did from receiving it :)
Home again, I found a little something waiting for me. It was my own parcel, containing seven orchids, six of them hardy. Three are Epipactis gigantea. I saw this hardy orchid first at June Blake's last June (where this photo was taken).
So potting up is on the menu tomorrow and I need to get cracking with sowing and potting on and clearing the garden. Actually, just at the moment, I feel exhausted by the whole idea but once I get going it will be fine
