  • Description

    Haywards Heath, West Sussex.

    Several shots show exotic orchid blooms in a glasshouse at Charlesworths' Nursery. Leslie Nye pollinates two orchids. Eric Bowers snips a pod from an orchid plant, scrapes some seeds onto a glass slide and looks at them under a microscope, then puts them into a sterilised glass flask as part of the seed sewing propagation. The flask is placed on a rack in a greenhouse with numerous others; some other flasks have tiny green star-shaped plantlets growing in them.

    Rows of pots with small orchid plants are seen in the greenhouse; a man checks a thermometer; several more orchid blooms are seen. Orchids are packed into boxes lined with tissue paper.

    Note: on file are cameraman's notes and a printed leaflet giving details of how to get to the Nursery. Cuts exist - see separate record.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.

With just days to go before Scotland makes their big decision, Pathe looks at the best of Scotland.
