We thought we’d share a few Le Quartier Français World Cup 2010 pictures with you …
Archive for June, 2010
If you’ve visit Le Quartier Français over the last few year you would definitely have noticed our beautiful orchids. We actually can’t take credit for these beautiful plants. Mike Tibbs, from the Exotic Plant Company, handles all our exotic plant and fresh cut flower needs. Mike is our green-fingered magician and he makes sure that, from an indoor plant perspective, the hotel and restaurants always look phenomenal.
The Exotic Plant Company have recently moved their Orchid Nursery and Fresh Cut Flower business to Môreson Farm. They’ve erected a beautiful greenhouse which, as luck would have it, officially opens its first phase tomorrow (Friday the 18th of June 2010). The final phases will be completed by the end of June/July 2010.
The addition of the Exotic Plant Orchid Nursery, to the Môreson offering, means that – as a guest – you can pop in for lunch, at Bread & Wine Vineyard Restaurant; buy a case or two of the excellent Môreson bubbly, Premium Chardonnay or Pinotage to take home; and pick up a orchid (or three) and some beautiful freshly cut flowers on your way out.
For more information about the Exotic Plant Orchid Nursery at Môreson Farm visit their website or call +2721 876 3399.
