Free shipping for the holidays:
It's time for our usual December moratorium on shipping. During the holiday rush, packages of orchids can experience significant delays, which could result in frozen plants. We will stop shipping December 1 and resume shipping the first week of January. In the meantime, any order of $25 or more placed between December 1 and January 1 will be held until weather permits safe shipping January, and will receive free shipping. Free shipping will show up at checkout. Give a gift of orchids for the holidays:
If you want to give a gift to an orchid enthusiast, what could be better than a gift certificate? We can ship gift certificates in even the coldest weather! They come in multiples of $25. Special Sales:
We continue to offer a free "companion plant"
with any order of $20 or more. These are plants that are similar in culture to orchids, meaning that you can go away for several weeks, leave them unattended, and find them still alive and well when you return. Companion pants may include succulents, cacti, bromeliad-type plants, caudiciformes, and anything else that's drought-tolerant. They may be cuttings, seedlings, or bare-root plants. We'll choose whatever looks best and is most plentiful at the time of shipping. If you want a companion plant, you need to order it. It will not be included automatically. A word about our listings and shipping:
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 given 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 can remove it from the catalog. If that happens, we will notify you with an option to substitute or receive a refund. 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. Shipping is usually on Mondays or Tuesdays to arrive before the weekend, or on Fridays or Saturdays to arrive on Monday. 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. You can also contact us to make arrangements to pay by check.
