The majority of our lotus range is now available for mail order. Mail order season is relatively short and usually ends after just a few months when the plants are too large to post and its best to place orders and plant your lotus early anyway.
Lotus plants at the nursery will take a little longer to grow on and will be ready as advanced potted plants for retail at the nursery some time in the next month or two depending on seasonal conditions.
Mail Order season has begun with an early Spring. Our early plants and temperate lillies are now available for mail order on the web site.
The first orders will be sent out on Monday the 21st of August.
More plants will be made available over the coming weeks as they start growing for Spring, including Lotus.
With early Spring like conditions mail order season will begin soon for early Spring plants including some temperate water lilies.
The first mailing day will be Monday 21st of August. Plants will be made available for mail order on the website during the week before that starting on the 14th of August.
After the 21st of August you can expect a growing range of our plants to rapidly become available for mail order as growth accelerates through Spring including most of our temperate lily range and also our Lotus range.
Mail orders are now closed for winter with all products listed as out of stock on the web site.
Plants will be available again next Spring, exact timing varies with seasonal conditions. However temperate lilies and early marginal plants usually become available very early in Spring between late August and early September. Lotus usually become available for mail order some time from late September to October. And tropical water lilies and other “Summer” water plants usually around October/November.
In the mean time most of our range remains available for retail purchase on site at our Nursery. However we do not recommend Winter as the best time to purchase even our advanced plants on site with some exceptions like Louisiana Water Iris.
Mail orders of items on the web site will be disabled shortly with the last orders being sent out on Monday 24th of April.
We close mail orders during Winter as the majority of our plants do not handle transplant and division well during their dormancy period.
Mail orders will open again early next season as plants begin to grow again in Spring.
Depending on seasonal variation typically temperate water lilies and early spring water plants will be available early September, or sometimes even late August, lotus are usually available some time late September and tropical water lilies more towards late Spring or early Summer.
We will post news items here as items become available again.
Tropical Water lilies are no longer available on the site for mail order. There are still miscellaneous plants available for a limited time before closure of mail orders entirely for winter.
Tropical Water lilies (and temperate lilies) are still available as potted advanced plants for retail sale at our nursery.
Temperate and Tropical Water Lilies and Lotus will be made available for mail order again next season as they become ready for division and postage starting in early Spring with Temperate Lilies and then Lotus and running to late Spring for Tropical lilies.
Lousiana Iris grow over winter, so while many other plants become unavailable for mail order at this time of year Autumn is the prime season to order and plant out your Lousiana Iris.
For now only a handful of varieties have been listed as available, but over the next few weeks as we pot and assess our own stocks most of the range should be listed as in stock for mail order.
Because we close mail orders entirely through the middle of Winter the Lousiana Iris mail order season is relatively brief, so take the opportunity to order them while you can.
Temperate water lilies are no longer available for mail order this season. Beyond this point it is no longer the correct time of year to divide and repot them safely so they are not available in the post.
They will be available again some time in early Spring once the growing/mail order season starts again.
Temperate lilies are still available sold as advanced potted plants on site at our nursery.
Tropical lilies and other plants are still available both on site at our nursery and for mail order on the web site. But the end of the entire mail order season is coming so get your orders in while you can.
With the December mailing delays over we have enabled mail orders on the website.
Tropical Water Lilies are now available for mail orders, including the popular blue and purple lilies and a few night flowering varieties.
Mail orders will resume on Monday the 9th, and go out each Monday as usual after that.
Due to public holidays and a partial postal week mail orders will not be sent out on Monday 23rd of January and will hold over until Monday 30th.
Mail orders are now disabled and all items are listed as out of stock on our online store due to the extended postage times for packages of live plants in December.
Plants, including Tropical Water Lilies will be listed as available again in January for the second half of the 2016/2017 season with the first orders being sent out on Monday 9th January.
