Hi,

Does anyone know of a flasking service in Europe? I have already tried to contact the two places mentioned in the old post below without success, so I would be interested in others.

Regards,

Christer

You could try:
http://www.tissuequickplantlabs.com/labimage.htm

I take it that orchidflasks.co.uk was one of the two you have tried.

Thanks for the replies,

Two UK ones Orchid Alchemy and as mentioned here orchidflask. Looked at TQPL but it seems they focus on commercial nurseries, and didn't take on any new customers either.

Regards,

Christer

I think Roelke used to advertise a flasking service, but can't see it on their new website. Might be worth asking.

2 in the UK I know do their own flasking are Equatorial Plants and Writhlington School. They don't advertise flasking services, but I guess if you have something unusual they might be willing to take seed for themselves and give you a flask back? Equatorial Plants does lovely healthy flasks (and he's a nice guy). Writhlington would be a bit more hit and miss with it being kids doing it!

Oh just remembered McBeans... definitely do their own flasks, but don't know if they do anyone else's.

I get my Pleiones done at Royden Orchids. Roy has a small set up but I have found him very reliable.

Steve,

Thanks for the heads-up on Royden Orchids, hadn't heard about that place. Although Bulbophyllum species is my main interest, pleurothallids is my other, which they seem to specialize on. Good to learn they do flasks too.

Thanks again,

Christer

They also accept cheques.
