Clearing the tropical glasshouse continues

Most of the old plantings have now been dug up and new plants propagated.  Here we see six keen volunteers with a range of the plants in pots including a fine flowering orchid specimen.  Now much of the old overgrown plant material has been removed the glasshouse staff are able to work on eradicating plant pests such as mealy bug and scale insect so that the glasshouse replaning will start in a clean environment in May 2012.
