Default Sentinel Orchids?

Howdy all,

Does anyone know if Sentinel Orchids is still in business? The website is still up but it doesn't look like it's been updated recently. An email to them bounced back. Thanks! Steve H

I just received their updated catalog.

Check spelling of email address, he had it mis-spelled somewhere in the past. It should be: markitectw[at]comcast.net

Kim, hope you don't mind that I've edited your post to modify the email address. It's usually best to avoid posting email addresses since they can get picked up by bots scraping the web for such info in order to spam them...

As written above, it is what is shown on his website, and what he used when he wrote to me.

I just tried the one you have and it seemed to work. The one on the website though is different as the url domain extension wasn’t the same.

What gets my attention in that company's catalogs such as : link here

Blc. Memoria Helen Brown ‘Sweet Afton’ : This mericlone has a shift and has better form than the awarded flowers. (pdf page 13)

The words 'has a shift' - I assume - means no longer Blc. Memoria Helen Brown ‘Sweet Afton’. So whatever extra words follow will be irrelevant - as in 'has better form than the awarded flowers (plants)'.

And on PDF page 14 (the following page), it says Blc. Magic Meadow ‘Sentinel’s Chartreuse’

..... which looks a bit 'suspect'. I very seriously doubt that the pic shown there is a result of Rlc. Magic Meadow - even if AOS just so-happened to give out an award. Will just have to take their word for it.

Otherwise, quite an attractive and appealing catalog.

Ray did mention once that the owner started growing orchids since a kid age. So the owner is obviously highly experienced.

Many very nice orchids in the catalog! I'm pretty sure that I would be one of his customers if I were living over there hehehe

True ...... the sentinel website has .com for the last part of the email address, instead of the correct tail end ---- being .net

I have purchased orchids from Sentinel before. The owner is a highly respected grower and orchid judge and his plants are top notch. I have been extremely happy with my purchases.
