Dear Friends, 

My new list appears earlier than I suspected. Some significant changes have taken place in our nursery and although I am very busy now writing new book (sorry, now it will be in Latvian for my home readers), but taking some pauses, finally I succed to arrange new catalogue, too.

This season I'm offering 400 items. It was some 10 years ago when I every year offered even 700 different pants, then shortened this number to 600, last year to 500 but even this turned too much for my current working capacity. So I decided to limit my offer with 400 different plants. If you have some special wishes - you can ask me by e-mail, and I will look what is possible.

Last year I got marvellous offer from Botanical Garden of Latvian University - they will build up new greenhouse (of same style as mine greenhouses) which will be dedicated exclusively to my plants. Two students of Latvian University regularly visits me and we are working together and if all will go as it is planned - this autumn part of my stocks will be split in two, and one part will go to Botanical Garden.

This will help to save my collections. Regardless of shortening of growing, I still have around 5.5 thousand samples of various bulbs. Last summer all of them were repotted. It mean that I harvested and replanted around 10 000 pots, each aproximately 2-3 kg heavy. Having 71 it was not more easy, so I'm very happy to donate part of all this to Latvian University in the100th Anniversary of Latvia.

Sells of my Crocus book goes very well. Still left unsold only around 200 copies and every week some books are going abroad. My book got Named Award of Latvian Academy for excellent achievements in biology and was listed in Honorary list of 10 best publications of the 2017.  So now I started to think about writing of The First Supplement. Researches on crocuses didn't stopped.

 

OPEN DOOR DAYS

 

This year we will have CROCUS DAYS - when every one can come and watch my collection on place.

Doors will be open during daylight from 15st-30th of March (dates are changed due weather prognosis for this March)

Now our catalogue is divided into 3 parts: The first part is the traditional offer, in which crocuses dominate, while some genera are not offered at all. The second part I named “LAST MINUTE OFFERS” – it could be published much later, when results of winter will be seen. And the third part is Līga’s peonies – see her Terms of Business, which are different from mine.
