Grenada at Chelsea

Hi Anne
Thanks for your donation of stems of your “Chelsea Orchid” which we used in a window display with others of the same (some donated by Margaret next door) and purple dendrobiums – all contributions greatly appreciated.
The support of so many gardeners and orchidgrowers is most helpful and Cathy does a great job collecting it up…. Good knock on effect with visitors to Grenada gardens, yours included – all good stuff.
Regards Suzanne
