To allow our children a Swedish education and to expose them to Swedish culture, we soon move there. That means Dokmai Garden will be put in a time capsule. It will be exciting to see how the garden and the orchid collection have developed when we return, and by that time Thailand is probably a different country.
VIP card holders may still enter the garden until their cards expire, but please remember to send us an e-mail first. Densak and Nived Seehamongkol will care for the garden together with other family members, but it is no longer open to tours and there will be no restaurant nor any other commercial activities.
The Dokmai Dogma will take a rest too, but we hope the 870+ blogs will still help introducing newcomers to monsoon gardening and jungles.

Do you remember the Eulophia andamanensis orchid? It was pollinated naturally and we hope this pregnant lady (top right) will spread her seeds so that her grandchildren will prosper in our monsoon woodland.
