Punkdoc, what day are you going to the Chatsworth show.? Like you, it is close by, I have gone there since I was a kid, so whilst I have never gone to Chelsea because of logistical problems, this is good for all of us in the Midlands. I just worry, that so close after Chelsea, the builders of the show gardens will still be building or dismantling Chelsea while they should be building Chatsworth.

The new bridges and a marquee based on paxtons greenhouse will be interesting.

Lily beetles

What research are you doing?

Will the beetles be in a confined area? The thought of adding to the general Lily beetle population fills me with horror.

What plant is this

Orchid seed needs a symbiotic fungi in the soil to germinate. You obviously have it. I would just let it cast around where it is. People who dig these up  from the wild, usually find they die because they transplant them into soil that doesn't suit the plant. I'm still jealous
