Madagascar is home to an amazing flora with about 1000 orchid species most of which occur nowhere else. At Writhlington we are very excited to be getting involved in helping in the conservation of some of these amazing plants. This photo shows Jack from Greenhouse club talking to Stuart Cable who is head of Kew's Madagascar team
and he has been down to Writhlington to discuss ways in which we can support him and his work with Madagascans to conserve orchids. We have lots of exciting ideas so watch this space and see what happens over the next few years. The orchid Jack and Stuart are looking at is Angraecum leoinis
a Madagascan beauty we have grown in our propagation lab. We will take a photo and upload it later for you to have a closer look.
