Here are some updates from Wrightman Alpines :

 CBC Radio Interview: Wrightman Alpines moves to St. Andrews - or listen on the Wrightman's site :

"Wrightman Alpines moves to St. Andrews
Harvey Wrightman has been growing alpine plants for rock gardens for 30 years. He sells them to customers all over the continent through his mail order catalogue. While St. Andrews may not seem a to be great spot for alpine plants, that where he's moved his nursery and it turns out it's a perfect fit!"

 News from  Wrightman's    of a small  hold-up ...

"Wish I could say the online ordering is working, but no, not yet. We've had to update the entire site since last season, including the ordering system to be PCI compliant, and there is more to it than I'd hoped (no wonder small mail orders are dropping like flies). That mixed with the holidays and some services we need not being available for us has slowed the process down. But I don't think I'm being too optimistic in saying it should be ready in this coming week."

Wishing them well with their technical hiccup.
