AS we knew this unusual very late cold spell was coming, in amongst all the other work, I arranged for all the budded Dendrobium speciosums to be relocated to the main nursery.
They would be safer there as I could close up th houses airtight and ever so slightly warmer.
All the 300 mm pots in advance bud where loaded into two vans and bought back here. We had started constructing the benches ready for the display in two weeks as shown below 2017
The little vans contents were loaded into the main igloo about 30 plants.
Then we turned out attention to unloading the big van of about 100 more 300mm pots.
Now on another matter, three weeks ago we made the decision to stop people just walking in off the street unannounced. Too many holiday makers and time waters, distracting staff and generally getting in the way of Australia post trucks and forklifts. Turning away customers, are we mad?
We yes we are struggling to cope,not enough staff that truly know orchids well, so all the questions and ll come back to me (Wayne) and I end up serving them and not doing what I need to do such as ebay and this website or actually growing orchids. THis sign was created for the front gate.
