I love indoor creating bottle gardens, terrariums, vivariums, orchidariums, and other indoor gardens. In this article I’ll show you how one of my orchidariums was created. I hope this feature will help you if you’re considering creating an orchidarium, vivarium, terrarium, or other lovely indoor garden of your own.

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2017 featured five new Show Gardens – The Radio 2 Feel Good Gardens, designed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Radio 2. Each of the Radio 2 Feel Good Gardens depicts one of the five senses and is named after a Radio 2 presenter.
I so enjoy growing miniature, epiphytic orchids. When I am mounting epiphytic orchids, usually I use cork bark as a mount, although sometimes I will use other woods to mount my orchids, it all depends on which orchid I am growing, and what materials I have.
I hope this information will help you, if you’re mounting epiphytic orchids onto cork bark or other wood, or if you’d just like to learn more about these diverse and interesting plants.

The Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show is the most prestigious event of the horticultural calendar; with gardens designed by award winning garden designers and new plants, launched exclusively at the show, the RHS Chelsea Flower Show offers inspiration at every turn.
This year it was wonderful to see Dan Pearson back at Chelsea, his Laurent-Perrier Chatsworth Garden won a Gold Medal and the much coveted award of Best In Show from the Royal Horticultural Society Judges.
This is a follow on post from an article I have written for Vantage Point magazine on terrariums. On the 25th September 2014, I planted both the BiOrbAir and a traditional terrarium, hoping to inspire Vantage Point readers to plant a terrarium. This was the start of my long-term BiOrbAir trial and review – something I am just so excited about!
