A little about the company.
Ray Creek Orchids is a small firm run by Ray with a little help from his
family. Ray is a professional plants-man who has been involved with and
growing orchids for many years.
In nineteen ninety-five he started a fulltime business selling orchid plants
by mail-order. Since then the business has grown and now supplies a wide
range of orchid plants plus a small range of orchid sundries.
The latest addition to the range is Chopped Coconut Husk a relatively new
growing medium, for orchids, that has several advantages compared to more
A comprehensive list of orchid varieties is available at any one time. This
includes orchid-hybrids and species (botanical) and orchids both as both
young plants and near flowering size. The nursery also stocks flowering sized orchids
that are suitable as houseplants or gifts for those special occasions. With
the latter it is better to contact us by telephone or email so that we can
advise on what is available.
Some words from Ray himself
Whilst very few orchids are propagated from scratch I see my roll as
searching out good, wholesale supplies from sources world-wide. These plants
are first potted, (if necessary) then established and acclimatised to the
British climate. This may take from anything from a few weeks to several
months depending on the condition they are received in.
I also acts as a
quality controller, only buying from suppliers who offer good quality at
One of our aims is to make orchids more available and user friendly to
beginners and the general public.
All orders for orchid plants are sent out
with basic growing instructions plus a little basic cultural information on
individual plant labels. Also all plants are supplied established and
growing in their pots. This means that they can adapt more easily to your
individual growing conditions straight away with no transplant shocks.
We also stock a wide range of the more unusual hybrids and species for
those people who want to develop their interest into a full-blown hobby.
It is in our own interests for our customers to succeed. This leads to happy
and successful growers who are keen to develop their orchid collections.
If you are not so sure about buying your orchids on line then perhaps you
would like to visit one of the events around the country that I attend.
These range from full-grown orchid shows to talks to orchid or gardening
clubs and societies.
If you would like me to attend your orchid show/event or present a talk to
your society please get in touch.

welcome. In addition cheques are welcome with orders by post.
Due to the planning restrictions on my property I am sorry not to be able to
welcome visitors. However this does have the advantage of letting me pay
maximum attention to mail-order.
Due to shipping costs, I do not
deliver outside of the United
Kingdom, except to an EU address by
special arrangement, if you wish a
delivery to be made outside of the
UK, please contact me for shipping
Chopped Coconut Husk and feed can be supplied to any country but
shipping outside the United Kingdom does get very expensive.
