irises from China

  • To: Multiple recipients of list <iris-l@rt66.com>

I received this announcement from a person on the Alpine-L mailing list.
Some of you may be interested.

NOTE: This message applies to UK residents ONLY. I understand a similar
undertaking was organized for US residents, but I don't know if it is still
open. The US contact is Jan Renfroe <jrenfroe@NVINET.COM>

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

A small group of us in the United Kingdom is putting together a joint order
for plants from a wholesale nursery in Kaichen, China.

If you are interested and live in the UK, please get in touch with me as
soon as possible, ideally with a list of the plants you are interested in,
and how many of each. My email address is:

Alisdair@compuserve.com

You can look at the Kaichen website at:

http://www.bjkaichen-hgd.co.cn/

I found few of the pictures came through fully, but all were
intriguing!

Following are Kaichen's terms of trade.

--$500.00 US minimum (but another version says 1000.00 US) for total
order (ie no individual minimum)

--20 plants per species minimum (again, total order)

--20% down payment when order is placed, orders due by October 1
--80% due 5 days after order arrives (probably November)

--Shipment is by air at approx $2.00 per lb.

I have included the listing of plants that they offer.  There are 2
lists, so look at both, they are different. (I have deleted from
List Two plants that are included identically on List One. I have
also deleted all terrestrial orchids, as we will not be including
these in the order.)

The symbol * after the price means that it's almost certain that
we already have enough interest to meet the 20 plant minimum
order in that species. The symbol (*) means that people are
interested in ordering that species, but we need more orders to
meet the 20 minimum.

I have kept the Kaichen spellings even when these are inaccurate,
or eg when the plant is now considered a Semiaquilegia rather than
Aquilegia, or Podophyllum hexandrum rather than emodi.
Note that there is no guarantee that plants will be true to name!
