Grow & Show Collections.
Well those of you who have a 2008 to 2009 Dainichi Grow & Show Showa with us will be amazed. They have now out-grown the facility and will be harvested ready for collection as of the 13th July (BBQ weekend Sunday). We ask that ALL of them be collected by the end of July.
We did intend to harvest them this week, but due to high temperatures in our growing tunnel we intend to early next week. We will photograph and size each koi with a up to date photograph on our grow & show pages before collection.
Many have doubled in size within the weeks they have been with us growing on for you.
Anyone who has not entered this competition can see them over the BBQ weekend as they will be placed in our fish house in pond 4, for ease of collection.
100% have improved and grown healthily this year we are pleased to report!
New Paste food.
Over the past few months we have been developing a new paste food to add to our Nutrikoi range. This will be on sale in store this weekend.
It comes in sizes of 1kg - £15.75 and 3kg - £32.95 so well within budget for everyone.
More details and each product will be on sale via our web site early next week.
Richdon koi farm special tosai.
Well last bank holiday weekend, our special tosai certainly created a storm. We would like to thank those of you who purchased these koi, they are certainly growing beyond our expectations. The 50k pond is out performing anything we have done before, so certainly the growing fee of £175 is worth it for such special koi.
If any of you are interested the remaining koi are STILL for sale, and available from now until September but the fee of £175 will be added to the koi as we cannot net these koi.
Come along and see some of the biggest tosai you will ever see grown in the UK. Many of which are growing more than some placed in mud ponds in Japan.
Dry goods ordering in the week
Of late many people have been phoning late on a Thursday afternoon, and asking for delivery on the Friday. Our courier now collects at around 1pm on a Thursday, so any orders after 12noon will not be sent until Friday and will arrive on the Monday.
PLEASE order early if you need anything for the weekend. If ordering online, please order earlier in the week and specify delivery for the Friday if that helps? It will certainly help us for sure.
WEEKEND VISITING ONLY.
We are still too busy during the week to open weekdays. We also feel this is a time for the koi in our fish-house time to rest after a busy weekend. Our mail order side of things is growing more and more, with people wanting great prices and service.
Our phone lines are open from 9am till 5pm Monday to Friday and the same as our opening times at the weekend. If you do wish to visit us during the week then please phone first! We do try to accomodate those who just turn up during the week but there are times when this is beyond our control and we sadly have to turn people away.
See you soon
The Richdon Koi Team.
