Spring Show Season is Here
: During March and April we will be traveling to several out-of-town shows, which may cause some delay in shipping orders. The first one is the Mount Baker Orchid Society Show and Sale on March 1-2 at Skagit Valley Gardens
, Mount Vernon, WA. On March 15, wearing our other hats, we will be at the Artisan Fragrance Salon
in San Francisco, CA, and on April 26-27 we will be at the Oregon Orchid Society Show and Sale
in Portland, OR. If you're in any of these areas, please stop by our table and say hello!
Olympic Orchids in the news:
If you'd like to read a little bit about our business, here's an interesting article
that was recently published in a local newspaper.
Even though it's spring in the Pacific Northwest, temperatures are still very cold throughout much of the US. Before shipping we always check the 10-day forecast for our area, your area, and likely transit points in between. If it looks like there will be cold temperatures, we always include a free 72-hour jumbo heat pack. If low temperatures are expected to be below 26 degrees Fahrenheit, we will delay shipping until the weather warms up. In case of a delay, we will notify you and provide periodic updates. We want your plants to arrive safely!
Updating our listings:
We have just gone through the catalog and removed plants that are out of stock, and will be adding new ones as time permits. Because we are growers, not resellers of mature plants, we typically have a limited number of plants of a given species or cross at any time, and plants are in a variety of sizes. We try to keep the catalog up-to-date, but sometimes an item will sell out before we remove it from the catalog. We usually have quite a few items that are not yet listed in the catalog, so if you're looking for something in particular, just let us know.
Ordering and payment options:
In addition to the online store, we accept phone orders (206-229-7919) and process US credit or debit cards by mail, e-mail, or phone.
