—– PLEASE READ BEFORE ORDERING. Placing an order confirms you have read these notes.
All my seedling plants are grown from seed by me indoors before being moved to the greenhouse to grow them on. Seedlings with an order code (e.g. 2018_MESA_456.643) are from seeds sourced from responsible and well established seed providers. The code states the year they were sown, the source, and the catalogue number of the supplier. Any seedlings marked as “own” are grown from seed from my own plants and which have set seed without my intervention.
Most cacti seedlings will be at least 10mm in diameter (or height), succulents will be somewhat larger. A few minature cacti (i.e. Frailea may be smaller than 10mm). Plants sent bare roots, wrapped in newspaper and shipped in a box. Each plant will have a printed paper label with their name on. Plants are sold with the name they came with on the packet of seed. I am not an expert on taxonomy.
I DO NOT grow (and hence don’t have for sale) what might be termed “choice” Mexican plants; Ariocarpus, Turbinicarpus, Lophophora, Aztekium etc.
ALL PLANT NUMBERS ARE VERY LIMITED AND OFFERED ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVED BASIS.
I AM AN AMATEUR GROWER. THESE PRICES ARE INTENDED TO HELP COVER MY COSTS OF PRODUCING THE PLANTS, NOT TO MAKE A PROFIT. PLANTS ARE VERY LIMITED IN TERMS OF QUANTITY – OFTEN JUST TWO OR THREE SPARES ARE AVAILABLE.
Postage is £4.00 and to MAINLAND UK only. Parcels CANNOT be sent to any other country. All parcels are sent by HERMES Courier and they are collected from my house. For parcel tracking purposes your email may be used when I book the parcel (you will receive updates from the courier). If you don’t want me to do this please let me know. PLEASE allow SEVEN days before enquiring where parcel is.
Payment is by Paypal only please (sorry, no cheques). Payment within FIVE days please, or plants may be offered to other people, if in short supply.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU QUOTE THE FULL NAME OF THE PLANT. THANK YOU.
WHILST I WOULD NEVER KNOWINGLY SEND OUT PLANTS WITH MEALY BUGS ON THEM, THEY ARE PRESENT IN MY COLLECTION (THOUGH IN SMALL NUMBERS). ON RECEIPT OF YOUR PLANTS THEY SHOULD BE OPENED AND CHECKED AND THEN QUARANTINED FROM ANY OTHER PLANTS FOR AT LEAST THREE WEEKS.
