Welcome to our new site! Stay tuned, much more to come.

Clivia in the greenhouse

A shiny new site! With a shiny new motor! After many many grueling hours of web design work, programming work, hours of rewriting & updating descriptions, work, more work and work, we have finally launched. There is so much more we want to bring to this site, please keep checking back. Our Facebook & Twitter are updated several times a week so that's also a great way to stay updated.  

Some of the things we are planning in the near future:

  • Blog posts on advanced plant techniques, such as hybridizing & rooting cuttings
  • Advanced sorting to make your shopping faster & easier
  • More alternate photos so you know exactly what to expect from your prospective plant
  • Plant articles such as beginner guides, pest control, fertilizer types & plant recommendations
  • Frequently asked questions
  • Daily specials
  • Photos that will be free to use under Creative Commons
  • Higher integration with Facebook, Flickr & Pinterest
  • ...Do you have anything you'd like to see? Let us know.

Also, you're accustomed to hearing from Elizabeth, but you'll be hearing from Elizabeth's sister (yours truly) more often so that we can offload a lot of the computer work. Now Elizabeth can focus more of her expertise in the greenhouse.

We love feedback & comments (even the negative ones, really!) so let us know what you guys think.
