Ever wanted to grow orchids and don’t know where to start? If so, this free event in January is for you.
We are delighted to be welcoming back Chelsea Gold Medal Winners, Burnham Nurseries for 2024. This family-run nursery based in South Devon have been specialists in growing Orchids for 70 years, offering the widest range of Orchids in the UK. They will be bringing their extensive knowledge, as well as a large selection of rare and unusual Orchids to us here at Beetham Nurseries, for this very special event. Enjoy chatting to them, asking questions, and purchasing from their fantastic selection.
Join us at 2pm on Saturday 14th January for a talk by Sara Rittershausen all about ‘The Wonderful World of Orchids’; this free talk will introduce you to this fantastic and unique plant, and Sara and her team will be here all day should you have specific questions or queries about growing your own Orchids.
If you have Orchids at home that need a little care and attention, bring them along to our Repotting Clinic which will be available from 9am - 5pm.
