One of my Orchids i bought for £5 on 6th March this year from Dobbies in Aberdeen and its still inbloom and now growing another flower spike Pam.

And 2 in my conservatory I am hopefull and loads of new greenshoots.

My secret now is I water once a week and if your shoots are greenyou know you have a hewalthy Orchid.

I am so loving my Vandas in vases water every day for half and hour then discard water.

Have 12 Orchids plus 1 new one I bought today at Orchids .

Along with 2 more clematis .

Karen I am getting as bad as you with clematis.

All my Orchids are growing so fast new flower shoots.

I now have got down to a fine art getting my Orchids to rebloom.
