Seed list 2016-17

Wild collected seeds from China

Spring Sale - 25-50% off everything!

Unless otherwise noted all seeds were collected by me in China this autumn, and should hopefully germinate freely next spring. Older seeds are sold with a discount, and although I make no guarantees, most seeds should remain fully viable.

Seeds are packed in glassine envelopes or ziplock bags labelled with the catalogue ("collection") number.

If you want to see more pictures of my travels here in China, feel free to visit my Facebook page.

Summer trip to the mountains of Sichuan - June 24th to July 9th

Join us for a summer trip to the mountains of Sichuan, at the time they're at their best! We will see at least 6 species of Meconopsis, at least 5 species of lilies, alpine meadows of Cypripedium tibeticum and Omphalogramma vinciflora, and many, many different species of orchids, Primula, Arisaema, Smilacina, Souliea, Corydalis, Fritilaria, Polygonatum – including the two rare mountain endemics Heteropolygonatum anomalum and H. pendulum.

The trip will cover some 1800 km, and pass over 7 mountain passes (with trips to an additional two gorges), the highest pass will be on Balangshan, at 4480 meters altitude. We will travel in rented vans and/or cars the entire trip, so we're able to stop any time we'd like to botanize along the road. The trip does not include any difficult trekking, although 2-3 days will allow for optional trekking if you want to. Expect some light walking in uneven terrain at high altitude, with the option of taking a day off for relaxing several times during the trip.

Notes regarding ordering: Paypal is preferred due to the fees my bank charge on international transfers, please use the secure shopping cart and check-out. There is no minimum order, but I charge a flat rate shipping fee of $5 which includes registered postage and a padded envelope. Seeds are shipped from Hong Kong.

I am willing to send, but do not accept any responsibility for orders to Australia, New Zealand and the USA. (I have, however, sent multiple orders to all three countries over the last three years without any problems.)

For capacity reasons I will no longer accept US orders sent through the "small lots" program, nor orders by email.
