The Plant Based Podcast

Mar 7, 2021

Join plant fanatics Michael and Ellen as they chat all things orchids with Dan Pass, the Account Manager at the UK’s largest orchid nursery, Double H Nurseries.

In this fact-filled episode, Dan gives us a glimpse into what it takes to grow their exceptional orchids, and what it’s like to be supplying them to the likes of Marks and Spencer’s and Waitrose. He also shares tips and tricks to help you care for your orchids at home, and even gives his recommendations for those starting their own orchid growing journey!

Dan also opens up about the disruption caused by COVID-19 and how it spurred them to diversify the business – transforming their Love Orchid campaign into an e-commerce opportunity, finding a way to deliver orchids and other plants to the doorsteps of their customers.

He also chats about the business’ commitment to sustainability and how the founding family - the Stevenson’s - are still present within the business  five generations on, and how that helps to encourage the family-focused values the company prides itself on today.

If all that wasn’t enough, there’s also the latest gardening gossip with The Orchid Whisperer, a news round up and Joey and Katy from share their recipe for a delicious roasted butternut and butter bean stew!
