Like all new species that we have, getting the seeds to germinate can be quite a trial. We start off with our standard media and if we don't see any action in that we move on to some of our more exotic media until we find the exact match for the particular species are growing.
Next year our species list of plants for sale will increase considerably as plants we have been encouraging into pots become well established. Once they have been out of culture and into pots for a complete year through at least one winter season they become sufficiently robust to be handled from pot to post and then into your garden or containers. We would anticipate that the three new species to be put onto this website will be Early Purple, Bee and Pyramidal Orchids, so keep watching the catalogue page. In the mean time we have found a lot of interest in buying our plants that are in sterile culture, still in glass. These are £30 for each jar which contains 5 growing seedlings. Because they are not suitable for posting we will take a selection to the talks we give to orchid societies and by arrangement if anyone would like to pick them up from one of our plant fairs.
