Cymbidium Orchids TLC Treatment Glamis Castle Project


By Scotkat


This afternoon I popped over to the walled garden to tidy the Orchids .

These were rescued from the Castle by our Head Gardener .

And had been sitting in the glasshouse.

It was getting to me so .

Thsi is what I was doing.

They now have all been fed an watered and I took 1 home to tear apart and pot up with fresh bark ,I shall take it back on Tuesday.

So watch this space and see if get them to grow with success.

Yes I so hope so Angie.

Then I went out to weed but was getting stopped with so many nice visitors .

Sorry Karen did not get so much weeding done for chatting to our nice visitors.

They are so beautiful in bloom but they do like to sit around doing nothing for a long time. I have now asked family not to give us any more orchids as they need space! :O(

I do like my Orchids but dont have cymbidiums any more as they get too big.

I have 3 in my lounge but rest that are out of bloom are in my conservatory.

Are you having a laugh? ;)) I was nose to the ground for hours on Wednesday! I did two big quarter circles and about a quarter of the long border!

it seriously've done a cracking job there with those poor orchids. Can't wait to see them in flower! Do you think they will flower in the winter?

See you Tuesday Kath ;)

No not laughing knew you and Letty had been so busy.

After I finished the Orchids Karen I went to make a start at weeing 1 of other circles and only got trug half full of weeds and kept getting stopped by so so many visitors wanting to chat.

So I then gave up at its was 3.45pm.

But the visitors were so happy to chat and find out about the walled garden .

Yes see you Tue.
