Two popular botanical themes are Orchids on stamps, and Roses, shown on this Botanicals page. Please see Botanicals by Country for general botanical stamps, Fungi for Mushrooms and Toadstools on stamps, and Trees, and Views, parks and gardens for stamps showing those themes. Sometimes a stamp fits more than one category, so you may find trees on stamps in Views, parks and gardens, rather than in Trees, and some orchids in general sets, such as those from Bhutan, Fiji, and the Malaysian States.

Most stamps shown here are postally used unless stated otherwise. The postally used stamps have been specially selected for light postmarks. The mint stamps are all unmounted, and CTO means stamped with a neat postmark for collectors..

I have a lot more orchids and roses on stamps, so if you are looking to fill gaps in your collection, or would like to explore a particular theme, please email me c/o alisonlever@yahoo.co.uk.

Ordering stamps:

To order stamps, just email me alisonlever @ yahoo.co.uk and let me know what you want. I'll answer as soon as possible. This may not be the same day, but you do get personal service, and I am happy to search for stamps on just about any theme. There are a lot more stamps in stock than is possible to show here, so it's worth asking about your particular interest.

Please allow £0.95 (95p) if you come from anywhere in Europe, and £1.50 if orders are to be sent elsewhere. The postage charge is the same however many stamps you buy. This means that it's cheaper to buy more than one stamp, because the cost of packaging and postage is less per stamp. This reflects the time spent ensuring that the stamps are packed so that they arrive to you safely - it takes about the same time for one stamp as for larger orders.

Your stamps will be sent as soon as I receive payment. You can return the stamps and obtain a refund if they are not what you expected. Paypal is preferred, though other forms of payment can be negotiated. Euros are welcome as well as pound sterling.
