We select plants of superior breeding to be used for show and judging purposes. If you are looking for that special plant to win at your local orchid show, we are the nursery to supply you. Our main speciality is Cattleyas originating from Brazil and South America, but hybridised by Carter and Holmes. However, they have a very varied list of genera for sale and their full catalogue can be viewed on their website. There is also a direct link from this website to Carter and Holmes. www.carterandholmes.com
We also offer to include your own selection of plants together with our orders from the States – this gives you the opportunity to have something unique to other growers in the country. The best time to import is early spring in the Southern Hemisphere, this gives the plants two summers and assists the plants in quickly producing roots after their arrival.
Mail order of non-blooming orchid plants throughout South Africa is the backbone of our business and orchids are packed and sent by Postnet or Dawn Wing Couriers on a Monday and Tuesday each week. Each of these offer a 2 – 3 day service but Dawn Wing will deliver to the door. Smaller plants are sent in their pots together with their mix preventing any setback in growth.
