No longer sowing commercial flasks

April 4th, 2024|

With regret we can no longer accept work for sowing commercial flasks for customers. We have had to make the decision due to a whole bunch of factors that ultimately mean that it doesn’t make business sense to continue doing so. If you have a pod of something particularly rare and desirable that you need sown, please do contact us, as we may be able to help and come to an arrangement.

We will still continue to offer quality flasks of our own plants and donated pods/seed.

We’re now more flexible than ever

February 16th, 2024|

As part of the all the recent website upgrades, we now accept payment in 7 major currencies and now offer direct credit card processing instead of via PayPal. Also supported is Apple Pay and Google Pay. For regions with a supported currency, it should in most instances detect what country you are in.

It’s been a while…

February 13th, 2024|

2023 was a year we’d probably care to forget for many reasons I won’t go into. However there is renewed enthusiasm for 2024. To kick off the year, we’ve listed a bunch of flasks on the site. Hopefully a good selection of things to interest almost anyone. There will be a lot more listings to come over the weeks, here and eBay.

Open Day 2019

November 19th, 2019|

Dear All,
The Sarcochilus have been very late to flower here at 333 Ackland Hill Road, Coromandel East but they’ve opened in large numbers since last weekend.
I’m having an Open day this coming Saturday 23rd November and am trying to reach all members of local clubs so that they can attend if interested and able. Please pass this on to anyone who might be interested but who is not contactable by email.
I will provide the necessaries for a Barbecue on the day.
It’s my hope to get club members together who don’t usually or often interact with each other, to show how easy it is to grow Sarcochilus and to sell as many as I can of the plants that I’m not going to keep as breeders. It will be an opportunity for people to obtain plants cheaply to start or add to their collections.
I’m hoping that Wednesday’s weather doesn’t affect the flowers too much and expect they will cope well enough.
Please see attached document.
