Fab! And fab timing.... I know nothing about orchids. I have one and chopped off it's "dead stalk" oops it turns out. Will it ever flower again or shall i bin it?

Thanks @carolecuttingitfine I'll stalk the expert! Turns out I've cut its flowering stalk so may be irreplaceable damage

Oh no! I have lovely glossy green leaves.... I live subtropical /temperate zone(coastal nz) so thinking I'll pop it in my 'woodland' garden and see what happens 🤔

That sounds like a plan and they will look great @bananapassionfruit unfortunately I don’t have tropical heat 😂 but I don’t have the heart to throw them out?!

The most beautiful orchid bought for me for my birthday from my longest standing friend - we met at playschool and she's smug because she's younger than me 🎉

Thank you for your kind words @hayleyaj @rachelbrooks @susanhumphrey333 @juliesgarden @brightcolours @christineb had a lovely day mooching with my husband in my birth city of Bath, listening to my niece's talk in Waterstones about her latest book, very proud aunt and heading back to the village pub for supper with the family- perfect 👌
