Hello Orchid Growers January 2021
Wishing you all a safe, happy and healthy New Year. Pictured are some of our flowerings for the first week of the year and shows promise for a good 2021.
We finally have internet and phone services restored from 23rd December. This unbelievable ordeal began on 20th October when we totally lost internet and phone. It has been a long stressful and expensive saga with Telstra, only to be eventually resolved with Telecommunications Ombudsman intervention.
Our website is now restored and up and current. There are many more new varieties listed across a wide range of genera. Over coming months, we will continue to expand our range available, including selected plants and divisions. Though we have not been able to operate functionally for internet sales over this past period we have been working very hard on the production side. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
It is still not possible to conduct our previous monthly Growers Group. The Queensland Government Covid 19 Health Directions make it practically unfeasible and as we all know Covid 19 rules and regulations are still continuing to change from month to month. We cannot afford the inadvertent risk of any penalty or fine!
Over next months we have a number of topical issues that we plan to publish in future Newsletters. The past month has been pretty busy with family as well as work. A highlight has been the birth of our third grandchild (so more babysitting duties to come!).
Thank you for your support
Ross and Liz
