The Blue Diamond Group was the first to sign up to stock the collection. James Nuttall from the Blue Diamond group said: "We are pleased to be able to support this project and will be stocking the DCF collection in our centres. Blue Diamond strongly believes in supporting young students in horticulture and by supporting projects like this we can play a part in raising the standards in our industry."
Van Hage, will also be taking the collection. John Morgan from Van Hage said: "We need to bring 'young blood' into our industry, buy stocking the collection Van Hage can play its part in supporting young horticulturists."
Following the launch at the show the collection has also been sold into Southdown's Nurseries, Stratford Garden Centre and Orchard Park among others.
DCF chairman Jeff Colegrave said: "We are delighted at how well the DCF Orchid Collection was received by retailers at the show. We have already raised enough money to support a student on their horticultural journey just from the show and are excited to see the collection's progress in store - with every sale we can offer more support to students".
