Orchids have always held a fascination
and interest for me and indeed I have been fortunate to have
worked in the mid 1970's at Wyld Court Orchids the 'UK home of
Lycastes'. Having that other great nursey Ratcliffe Orchids the
'UK home of Paphiopedilums' only a few miles down the road allowed
me to see the very best of orchids.
As a compulsive plant propagator it was perhaps fate that eventually
would allow me to return to combine these two passions - propagating
Paphiopedilums and Phragmipediums at Tissue Quick Plant Laboratories.
Never failing to get excited at the sight of germinating slipper
orchids, my main focus has been on efficiently producing seedlings.
New technology has been embraced and introduced to the industry,
including PTFE venting technology,
autoclavable plastic flasks and specialist media. I now sell
these tried and tested products worldwide to help with the raising
of Paphs, Phrags and other plants in the plant tissue culture
I have considerable experience of the industry, working for over
years in leading orchid nurseries, plant nurseries, tissue culture
labs and university research departments. In addition to my own
11 years contract production of plants for the UK and international
customers as Tissue Quick Plant Laboratories and TQPL.
