The summer is passing by quickly, nights get cooler. It´s time now to renew the store and add some more lilies, replacing already published species and clones. The new list should be finished within the next days and will be updated as soon as possible. The moment it goes online orders will be possible. Lilies grew fine the last 2 months over. Thanks for your all patience. Some more things will be changed at the website in order to make it more comfortable for visitors and customers.
Our webshop is closed through the summer-months as the plants would suffer from a shipment due to the temperatures. The Shop will be re-opened end of August/beginning of September with some new species which will be added. Some species of the last months are already sold out with some of their clones and these clones won´t be propagated anymore as we already work on other species.
We succeeded in some essential exports to America and are going to take up exports in fall again. Some pre-orders have already been announced. In any case please inform about your local import-regulations before placing an order. Especially to overseas-destinations we are tried to combine orders to a kind of bulk-order. That saves at import-costs, postage, import-fees and makes things less complicated. For overseas-export we are in collaboration with a new post-partner, shipping plants via DHLexpress. This plainly increases the postage but cares for a fast transport with no serious delay.
Following bulk-exports to far destinations are already planned for autumn: 1x to Russia, 1-2 x to Japan, 2 x to America, 1 x to Canada. Due to the phytosan. certification all overseas-exports have to be planned in advance, partly plainly in advance. Since Brexit the situation for exports to UK has become worse, never the less we plan 2 exports to UK as well but likely won´t be able to support the RHS online bulb-auction, taking part in October 2021, with some surplus bulbs of rare and rarest species anymore, what we deeply regret. We are still stubborn enough to believe things will improve in the course of time.
Within the EU and EU third States there are no problems or difficulties shipping plants to. Moreover we can rely on the local Austrian Post-Service that parcels are delivered carefully and right in time. We had problems shipping plants to Croatia in the recent past and blame the local post-service for. An order is still pending and we are trying to ship the plants personally via Zagreb in September.
Within the last 10 months numerous Lilium-bulbs have been sent throughout the globe finding a new home, sheltered and protected under your skilled hands. Thanks for your orders, thanks for sticking to lilies belonging to the division IX and that you offer them the chance to grow and to persist. Now it´s time giving a little rest to ourselves, too, but already at the end of July the plants for autumn ´21 are prepared to get listed and finally published. Due to the vacancies of our own inquiries might be answered with a little delay.
All the best, Matthias
