Sick Orchid Update - Has Nature's Gift worked?

It's Crunch Time!

I've had a request for an update video of my very poorly Phalaenopsis orchid.

Treating Orchid root rot
Orchid update - click the video at the bottom of this post

The story so far...

It was starting to struggle to stay hydrated, and only managed one flower this year, so I decided to repot. The roots were officially awful, rotten, mouldy and I ended up removing most of them, cleaning what was left with Isopropyl Alcohol and repotting in a clean pot with fresh medium watch that video here

Then I had a message from E-Coco Products UK, who had seen the vidoe and felt they had a product that might help cure the root rot. So I filmed another video which you can see here,

Three and a half months later, it's time to see if there is any hope for this orchid, are there any roots left in that soil?
Come and find out with me, keep your fingers crossed!

RHS Malvern Spring Festival

Visiting an RHS Show for the First Time

Hi everyone,
Last week I got the opportunity to travel across the country to visit the RHS Malvern Spring Festival - think Chelsea Flower Show, but a fraction earlier and a lot easier to get your purchases home from!

Spoiler Alert - I bought a new Hosta

I was delighted to be invited by the lovely team from E-Coco Products to be their guest, get to meet and film them, and get loads of garden inspiration too!

Click the link below and come and join me in this week's YouTube video, see what I saw, and what I bought too ⌣
