Phalaenopsis Purple Princess and Phalaenopsis ‘Kleopatra 4’ will join 56 other orchids that have received the RHS seal of approval.
Supplied by Double H Nurseries Phalaenopsis ‘Kleopatra 4’ and Phalaenopsis Purple Princess secured the AGM after a review and vote by the RHS Orchid Committee.
The plants, which are new to the mass market, having previously only been available to specialist orchid collectors, will carry the RHS AGM logo when they go on sale in Marks & Spencer and Tesco.
By including the logo, Double H Nurseries hope that customers will make their purchase confident in the knowledge that the plants have been assessed by the charity against five criteria:
- Excellent for ordinary use in appropriate conditions
- Available for purchase
- Of good constitution
- Essentially stable in form and colour
- Reasonably resistant to pests and diseases.
