Subject: realistically priced plants please


I have a big collection of house plants and over time have become intereted in collecting Orchids but havent been able to find plants or
growers in the DUNEIN or surrounding areas.

Can you help? E-mail me with the prices and the area you live in please.


Hi Kerry

I was interested in your message.

I live in Wellington, and am not a commercial grower, so I do not have plants to sell

If you want to find out more about orchids, I suggest you look up a local orchid society. There is one in Dunedin, called the Otago Orchid Club. Contact is with Mr Graham Letts 41 Eliffe Place Anderson Bay Dunedin ph 03 4542113 e mail

At their meetings they will often have plants for sale, and will be able to advice local sources of orchids. If you are not interested in joining the society, it may still be worth talking to him as most growers are only too willing to assist a new grower. They often hold shows and displays where you can often also purchase plants, and this also can be a good source of material.

There are some mail order nurseries in this country, such as Tuckers Nursery which is on the web

I trust this assists

With kind regards
