They are still in business but are in the process of rebuilding their 
website, so they don't have online ordering at this time. I didn't 
receive a printed seed list this fall, though I am on their mailing 
list, so perhaps they didn't issue one. I would write to them by post 
and ask to be put on the print mailing list.

The Archibalds have been the premier source for seed of hardy bulbs 
for the past two decades, and my collection would not be anywhere 
near what it is today without their efforts. In addition to their own 
collections, they have been distributing those of other specialists, 
including John Blanchard (the Narcissus expert) and John Watson and 
Anita Flores of Chile, as well as Californian collectors.
