Come and see our exotic display of orchids in the House Plant Greenhouse throughout March and April. Orchids are among the most evocative of all flowers. Their very name conjures up visions of tropical paradises but surprisingly they are found in the wild growing in a wide range of habitats ranging from cold bleak sub-Arctic regions to the warm humid rainforest forests of the southern hemisphere!
Our Orchid Extravaganza showcases some beautiful varieties with a wealth of familiar favourites (Cymbidiums, Pansy Orchids, Dancing Ladies, Singapore Orchids and the ever-popular Phalaenopsis or Moth Orchids) as well as others that are more rarely offered, subject to availability.
The new breeds of orchids are outstanding, easy to grow, prolific in flower and are the most rewarding of houseplants, well suited to our double glazed and centrally heated homes. There’s an orchid to suit every taste and, be warned, they are seriously addictive…once you’ve grown one, we can guarantee you will be smitten!
Ashwood Nurseries is unique in that we have a warm purpose-built greenhouse in which we grow and nurture our plants with tender-loving care in a perfect environment. If you buy a plant from our greenhouses you can be sure that it’s a happy, well-loved plant in the peak of condition.
We offer a range of orchid accessories, composts and feeds as well as some excellent book titles and free cultural guides in The Garden Shop.
Don’t forget Mother’s Day on Sunday March 26th! Orchids make a perfect lasting gift for Mother’s Day.
