The International Orchid Show, Malvern
13th - 15th June 2014
Thankyou very much to everyone who supported and visited the show. From our point of view the show was a great success with some superb displays and stunning plants, visitor numbers were very high and the management of the showground were very impressed with what we provided. As you can see above, we are invited back next year, 13th - 15th June. Trade sales were mixed with some selling far better than at previous shows, some just covering costs and some with disappointing sales. I am sorry that we did not send them all home as orchid millionaires but we will try again next year and it would appear that nearly everybody would like to come back again.
It was a learning experience for us and for the showground and we already have ideas in mind that will make the show even better next year; changing the economic climate might be hard but we will do our best. It will take a couple of years before the reputation of the show gets established and we should not have the clash with another orchid show at Tatton Park that we had this year.
