Peter − I have a friend living in Cardiff who planted some of his spare
pleiones, Tongariro outside against the wall of his house and they have
survived and flowered well. I dont think I will try it as Knutsford gets
colder than cardiff but he said they have had -12C ocasionally last
Regards, Alex

Growing Pleiones outside is interesting. I know at RHS Wisley Gardens they
had a plot where they grew Pleiones, and they flowered year after year. It
was in one of the small gardens, on the right as you entered it.
I know they grow Bletias (or however you spell it) at Kew Gardens close to
one of the old Victorian Greenhouses.

Just a couple of photo’s of Lemboglossum cervantesii. The one with three flowers is a small piece I potted up last Autumn. The piece with two flowers has recently been re-potted as it wasn’t growing very well. I have had it since 1984 and bought it from Wylde Court Orchids when they were in a greenhouse miles from anywhere.
