Dear Orchid Friends,
There is not much blooming these days, just few Cattleya tigrina hybrids and large-flowered catt hybrids. The Cattleya bicolors are in sheath/bud as are some other catt hyrbids. Various random botanicals are in bloom or bud.
The safety of our customers and staff is of the utmost importance to us. Masks are required at all times while on the nursery grounds (indoors and outdoors). Please maintain a distance of 6 feet between your party and your fellow orchid lovers and the SBOE staff. Please do not visit if you have been in close contact with anyone who has recently tested positive for COVID or if you have COVID-like symptoms. Some parts of our nursery will be closed during this limited opening.
We try to answer the phone 8 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Saturday. If we don’t answer, please call later or e-mail us. Plants may be ordered for pick-up outside the nursery gates if arranged 2-3 days in advance of pick-up date. Please phone or email if you have any questions.
