Default Orchid nursery in Seattle?

Anyone knows about good orchid nurseries in Seattle? My husband and I are going to Bainbridge Island near Seattle for his sister's wedding in early September. We may be in that area for one week. It will be our first time to be in Seattle! One of our favorite activists to do in a new place is to visit gardens and orchid nurseries. Is there any good garden or nursery that we can get to by public transportation? Well, if we can get ride from family members, it’s ok to be a little bit far.

Seattle Orchids and Olympic Orchids are both in that area.

I've been chatting with Ellen from Olympic Orchids. She is extremely nice. I would try to visit her.

Oh a new one, Olympic Orchids. I have talked with Brian from Seattle Orchids and have ordered from them a couple of times. He's also very nice.

Olympic Orchids usually ships VERY SMALL seedlings and mericlones. You need to be prepared for this. They are so small, and the sphagnum they come in is in such good shape, I would recommend not repotting them on arrival.

Good point. However, Hausermann's ships tiny plants also and I like watching them grow up!

I noticed that when I checked their website! It's quite cheap because of the size. I have never tried with seedling yet.

Just like with a human baby, you need to be more mindful of their needs. I find it rewarding to watch their progress.
