Dear Friends,

Like last year we are now able to supply selected seeds of some very rare species which are unlikely to obtain elsewhere. We also offer this year a larger selection of juvenile bulbs, corms and tubers, mostly 2 -3 years old.
All seeds are fresh from Autumn 2017 – spring 2018 and are not collected in the wild!!
As plants are grown mostly in open conditions we avoid proposing species that might hybridize such as some Cyclamen species etc. unless grown separately or specified as ‘open pollination’
If you are not on our mailing list and wish to receive future lists please let us know so that we can add you.
Seeds are priced 5 Euros per packet.
Oncocyclus Iris seeds are priced 8 Euros as they are all hand pollinated and we offer only healthy, large seeds.
Species that are good for naturalizing in Mediterranean climate gardens are marked
Please add 8 Euros for post
Payment is done with PayPal, I’m afraid we cannot accept any other method at the moment.
Keep in mind that the vast majority of the species are growing in Mediterranean climate therefore not suitable to grow out in the open garden. All species on this list need a long period of dormancy [summer] and should not be watered during that time.
Please notice!! We will start shipping the seeds July 15th 2018. Orders can be made till November 15th. You will receive a notice with the registered number. Our experience from the previous two years is that seeds arrive to most destination [worldwide] in 7-15 days but some took up to 5 weeks (NZ, China) so please be patient.
We appreciate if you can send a quick note telling us that seeds arrived safely
If you have any question regarding the species/ growing conditions germination etc feel free to ask. oronperi@gmail.com
There are some species that are not on the list as they are in very small quantities; you can enquire if you are looking for a particular species.
Thank you,
