My Beautiful Orchid
by Vi. Hawkins
I found my beautiful Orchid in a cheap supermarket in April. It was the only one left and looked a wee bit sparse, I loved the colour so took it home. I looked up to the internet as I wanted to look after it and I have been rewarded with a very healthy looking specimen which has produced many lovely flowers for the last 4 months and still blooming fantastically well.
It sits on my conservatory window with my other plants but I do move it when the sun is strong, I sit it on a clear glass saucer covered with green glass pebbles with water beneath the pot base. I dont know much about flowers but they all seem to thrive so I must be doing something right, I just hope after getting this far it can get through our cold winter (Scotland) and give me more pleasure next year.
