Telopea nursery - homepage

разсадник Телопеа


Hello, my name is Petar Kostov.
I love plants - strange, unusual, plants with a story, plants that inspire and kindle the imagination. They fascinate me not only with their beauty, but with the way they work, the unique adaptations they have. I have special interest in ornamental and medicinal plants.
Running a nursery the way I do it gives me the opportunity to live in a way that I sincerely believe is good not only for me but for the environment and the society. It is a kind of business that aims to generate more net profit for the environment than the costs it bears on it and the profit it generates is a means to this goal. In the process I strive to inspire my customers to think more about nature by enabling them to grow some interesting and not so common plans.
Along with the seeds or plants you will receive growing instructions based on my personal understanding and experience.
You can always contact me on Facebook: Petar Kostov or Instagram: Petar Kostov, via the web form or on my email .
I am sure you will enjoy some photos of my plants here.

Business conditions for international orders

*** Notice 20200323:
the following is an excerpt from the news section of the Bulgarian Post site:
Bulgarian Posts EAD informs its customers that, as of March 19, 2020, it is suspending the acceptance of outbound international registered letter, parcel and EMS shipments for all countries.
The measure is imposed due to cancelled flights by airlines, closure of land borders with neighbouring countries, as well as long delays in transport and delivery of shipments in a large number of countries in connection with measures taken to curb worldwide Coronavirus distribution. These circumstances make it impossible to meet the service parameters and quality standards.
Bulgarian Posts EAD dynamically monitors the situation and looks for opportunities to resume suspended international services.
*** Update 20200517:
As of 14 May 2020 the registered mail service is restored for some countries. Please consult the list here:

In this regard I won't be able to ship some orders until the situation changes and the shopping cart is disabled.
Thanks for your understanding and patience. Please Contact me for more info before placing and order.

Minimum order value:
The minimum order value is 10 EUR.

Payment can be done via PayPal either in EUR or in USD. The currency conversion is done using the daily rates as published by the European Central Bank.

I ship most of my products worldwide.
Standard shipping is via priority air mail postal service with tracking. I ship from Bulgaria, European Union. Whenever possible orders are combined in a single package.
Problematic destinations: Currently shipping to Canada is a matter of special arrangements so if you want me to ship there please contact me before placing the order.

Shipping price:
For packages with seeds up to 50 g. (incl. envelope) shipping costs 4.8 EUR with tracking and 2.3 EUR without tracking. If the package turns out to be heavier an additional payment may be requested to cover the increased shipping costs.

Order processing time:
The standard time for processing your order is 5 working days after cleared payment, but I strive to ship as soon as possible, which often means the same day for payments received before midday local time (Europe/Sofia). I do not reserve orders for shipping at a later time.

Product guarantee:
The species, origin, date of harvest and storage conditions of the seeds are guaranteed. Detailed info available via email on request.
No other guarantee is given.
All seeds are packed in new clean packaging - transparent ziplock bags (plus a folded paper envelope for some species), separated by species, hand cleaned to the highest reasonably possible degree, free from dirt, insects and other external impurities. On the ziplock bag will be a printed sticker label stating the botanical name (Genus, species, variety, etc.). Additional info like date of harvest and/or origin may also appear on the label.

Seeds and plants are perishable goods so no returns are accepted.

Export / import / customs issues and lost packages:
I assume responsibility for the export from my country and for tracked packages lost during transit. Untracked packages are sent entirely on buyers risk.
Each country has its own specific requirements for the importation of plant material. It is your responsibility to know the import regulations of your country. So please be aware of your custom regulations and inform me in advance about the way I should label the package on the CN22 customs declaration and if additional papers are needed in order to comply with the requirements of your country. You as a buyer must check with your customs, agriculture and postal department requirements for importation, and assume full responsibility for shipment in this regard. I will not be responsible for any custom and / or import duty issues, confiscation or destruction of packages by the customs and packages that disappear at the entry point of your country - no refund, no return, no replacement given.
I can provide both phytosanitary certificates and plant passports. Both of these documents are issued by the phytosanitary inspectors from the Bulgarian Food Safety Agency, so the prices and procedure complications are not justified for small orders. The fees start from 13 EUR and 7 EUR respectively. That's why these documents are provided only on request. If you require them you must contact me in advance to arrange it, otherwise the package will be sent without them.
I can use documents supplied by you such as import permits and similar. Contact me in advance to arrange it.

Shopping cart:
The shopping cart is not permanent, it will expire with the session. The shipping address you select in paypal takes precedence over the one you enter here if there is a difference. A valid email address is required for communication regarding your order, it will not be used for anything else and will not be shared.
