• Short Summary

    Orchids are bred and grown at greenhouse in Wandsworth, London.

  • Description

    Orchids for export.

    Wandsworth, London.

    Good C/U's of orchids. Brothers John and Cyril Dixon work in the greenhouse cross breeding and looking after the plant. They pick the flowers and pack them in cotton wool and water, then lay them in boxes. M/S as the lid is put on, scene dissolves to air hostess carrying a box and handing it over to another air hostess next to the aeroplane bound for America.
