I think we cleared customs!

The fall bloomers are starting.

I had a nice talk with the department of agriculture today and I will be proceeding with international shipping this year. All the details will be worked out when the catalog posts early next week.

A basic run down for international customers of how it will work. I have to process your order and have it ready for shipment, its then inspected and certified on my end. All the phytosanitary paperwork will be included with the shipment which should allow you to receive your order. However I don't have any control once it leaves here so I will be asking for prepayment on international orders. Obviously this isn't a perfect system and should you run into problems on your end I will help to resolve the situation the best I can but please understand that all countries have different requirements and I will have done everything I can on my end to make sure you are in compliance with your countries phyto requirements. International customers will have to cover the cost of phytosanitary certification which is $25 alone, however this is per shipment so if you have a friend in your country who wants stuff you can bundle an order and save money.

Domestic orders will be filled and shipped in the order they are received. International orders will be filled in the order they are received but have to be inspected so there will obviously be a delay.

Start asking questions now if you have them and it will help me get all the details sorted out on the catalog. This is new territory for me so remember that I'm not a global capitalist just a small time nursery grower of specialty bulbs trying very hard to get them to people who appreciate such things.

The catalog is coming.

Polypodium scouleri....this picture looks really tropical to me, but its taken out at Nestucca bay, one of my favorite beaches in Oregon.

Here is the underside of the leaf.

Now that you are good and distracted here is a picture of some biarum bulbs that will be offered in this years catalog. I have the harvest pretty much complete. I'm just awaiting am inspection from the at department and you'll see the list here shortly...

Tell your friends!

Harvest has begun!

My bulb grader hard at work sizing bulbs. This is how she earns her allowance.

Looks to be a good harvest this year look forward to the catalog coming soon.

I'm pretty lucky to have such an great daughter....she's been around plants her entire life and is a really great nursery hand.
