Maybe the orchid nursery world is like the plant world. Sure ----- every once in a while, a disaster comes along - eg. bushfire, that ploughs things down. But interestingly ------ once things settle, things may eventually come back ------ new things, new growth.

Even quite unique special things like Marlow's can come back - once everything settles.

Agreed. As a former small business owner, itís always a gamble to figure out how the world around us can affect oneís business. I started two in 2007, just in time for a big recession. Fortunately, both flourished because of it. I donít call it luck, but also hadnít planned the business model with recession resilience in the mix.

Oh you are so right KG, in fact I remember now that when I visited them several years ago they actually said that the boarding business had become their 'bread and butter'.

Marlow, to the best of my knowledge, has always been a small walk-in whose business is really driven by the show circuit.

I read that Chadwicks also nurses abused orchids to health (though they do not guarantee success).

If you don't mind I think I will copy this to a new thread, to draw maximum attention to it! Orchidboard is a large community, and I think the forum could be a big help in securing the future of Marlow's.
