March Update on Shipping

It seems like the weather is warming up somewhat throughout most of the US, so we have resumed shipping to most destinations east of the Rockies. However, because of the long period of extremely cold weather, there is a big backlog of orders waiting to go out. We are shipping in chronological order, weather permitting, so there may still be delays due to the large volume of orders we are dealing with.

We should be receiving a new supply of heat packs soon, so can ship to your location as long as the low temperatures in the 10-day forecast in your zip code and likely transit points are above 26F. If they are lower, we will continue to hold your order until temperatures are safe for shipping.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we all wait for spring to arrive.

We are growers, not florists!

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.
