The Gardens at Post Hill

At The Gardens at Post Hill we propagate and display temperate terrestrial orchids, related woodland plants, and other horticulturally distinctive plants. We are constantly expanding the information on the website and hope that you will visit often.

Please visit our GPH Store by clicking the links at left. You may purchase plants (in season) and Gift Certificates.

Our Fall Cypripedium and Dactylorhiza lists are now active. Please go the Cypripedium Store or the Other Terrestrial Orchid Store to order. We expect to add our Pleione list around the first of the year. Cypripedium, Calanthe and Dactylorhiza will be shipped in October. Pleione will be shipped in February.

As the Fall season nears its end, we have sold out of several varieties of Cypripedium including: Chauncey, Emil, Lucy Pinkepank, Philipp, Renate Pastel, and Victoria.

Make sure to place your orders soon. Our Fall List will close around October 15 to avoid freezing temperatures at delivery.
