M&S were doing another special, £12 single stem orchids reduced to a fiver. I went mad yet again and bought 5 more. I only noticed a year ago that M&S were selling orchids at such a cheap price. I'd never had an orchid before, as I was scared that they were too expensive and difficult to keep. I ended up buying three, and the flowers lasted for 3 - 5 months, which was lovely. One of these is now slowly growing flowers from a further node, so am very excited. The other two are resting.
