Dear friends and garden lovers!

Another very successful year has passed - Although I didn't travel in 2023 - I used this time to check my plants and for more researches. Despite the commitment to reduce growing, the collection has grown again.

I AM NOW FORCED TO ASK FOR A MANDATORY PREPAYMENT for the first time customers.

It will not be easy to prepare the new offer. I stepped into 78 and I have less strength left. I had firmly decided that in new list will be no more than 300 entries, and this catalogue could be named CROCUS CATALOGUE! However, if you have any plants that you particularly want and will not find in the new catalogue - write and ask without doubt. If it will be possible and I will have enough time, I will add those to your order. Regardless of very high inflation rate my prices (I hope) will remain +/- the same as before, very few are slightly higher (depends from size of stock). Of course, novelties, where stocks are very small, are expensive, sorry.

All offered plants are grown on my nursery myself. Most of them (species) are propagated from seeds, thus a certain variability in the appearance of the flowers can occur. During flowering, I’m walking around the greenhouse with a brush in my hands, pollinating the flowers. Of course, some hybrids may also appear, as it is impossible to isolate all the flowers, but this is the fate of all small nurseries that sell only their own-grown plants. I never offer wild-harvested bulbs, nor do I sell those grown by others.

My nursery is registered as a small farm, so I have a limited amount of total annual revenue to maintain this status according to our laws. Therefore, I will only accept orders until this gross revenue limit is reached, so don't delay with ordering. In 2023 my quota was full already in first days of January! Bulbs are shipped from the middle June and usually all orders are already shipped not later than in July.

I feel better than I supposed when I prepared list for 2023. I still want to travel in search of new plants, I just rebuilt one of my greenhouses and in coming years want do this with other greenhouses, too. My pension not allows this, so I must to continue my job to realise all my plans.

Sincerely Yours

Jānis Rukšāns, Dr. biol. h.c.
