Hi folks, Some of you will know I am taking over Plants plus sundries so the next few months is going to be trying!
To make it more difficult I think my website guy has pulled the plug on my koolorchids site after all the work I have put in, to make matters worse the plants plus site has developed an error! So both sites are down. I was in the process of a new branded online shop called www.orchidsupplies.co.uk but now I have cut ties I need another web designer, I have one in mind so hopefully the new site will be launched soon. In the meantime please keep us in mind for the future, I have already committed to six shows so hope to see some if you about.

Just the sort of problems you don't need at changeover time. Hope you get something sorted soon, but either way GOOD LUCK with your new ventures. As ever, if I can help in any way let me know - but sorry I don't "do" websites.

Harrogate, Sheffield, Hinckly x 2, Malvern if goes ahead, Wales, I turned down one due to travelling costs against income etc. I have loads to do , I have just picked up the Plants plus stock so am absolutely knackered. Now got to buy/build a log cabin and I have no bark or moss in stock, my main focus will be a proper online shop, but both sites are down so is a massive blow my link in getting the word out has been totally cut off!
I see a problematic year ahead and hope people bare with me until I get sorted.................. It is a big task...

My web developer assures me he hadn't removed my files and will help getting it up and running again, wonder if the host got hacked..

So will be looking for a reliable, reasonable host now as well.
I left a lot of stock outside last night, non perishable and guess what? Yes it had to pee it down so everything is soaked for me to move today!!
Sometimes everything seems against you!

Oh dear,

Well at least if your files aren't lost, it should be a fast (ish) task to get back online.

Is the Wales show the one in September? I have been invited too, and it will be my very first show ever (unless I get invited to anything before that, but I don't think my name is 'out there' yet!).

Francis

I think it is more of a case of getting the chance, so space available, I cannot get in to my own society show at the minute! I am not sure about the wales show as they haven't passed the details yet and the website doesn't state yet either. I have just contacted them.

Hi Folks, After a lot of blood and sweat, well mainly sweat and a head ache! Both sites are up and running and plants plus has been modified slightly for the change, I am now in a position to take orders by mail order - Email or by phone and through Paypal or cheque.

The stock levels are not quite as much as what Roger had as he didn't re order but it is pretty substantial for most needs, all his bark had been sold as well as sphag moss but everything else is pretty much available as listed on the www.plantsplus.org.uk website, I hope to sort the moss and bark as soon as I can, hopefully ready for the growing season!
