We have usually taken vacation in August, but this year it’s been postponed until September. We will be traveling from September 4-17, back in Seattle on the 18th. While we are away, no orders will ship, so there could be a significant delay depending on when you submit your order during this period. As a small compensation, we will offer $5 off any order totaling $25 or more. The offer is good from September 4-17. Use code VACATION5. Once we return, orders will ship in the sequence received.
Please be aware that if you want to send flowers as a gift, decorate tables at your wedding, stage your house for sale, etc., we are not your source. Most of our plants are seedlings in various stages of development. Some are at or near blooming size but others, notably cattleya seedlings and some species, are several years from blooming size. We show flower photos, when we have them, so that you will know more or less what to expect when your plant does bloom. When we have divisions of mature plants, these are generally shipped at a time when they are not blooming.
Our goal is to provide a variety of orchid plants at reasonable prices to people who enjoy growing them and watching them develop and bloom. If you want instant gratification, there are always the box stores.
All too often customers will write to us saying that the shipping address on their order is incorrect. When you place an order, please double-check to make sure your shipping address is correct and complete. This is especially important if your shipping address and billing address are different or if you are having your package shipped to a third party. We cannot be responsible for incorrect or incomplete addresses entered on orders.
If you move, it is always a good idea to complete a change of address form at the post office so that they can forward any mail you receive at your old address.
