The Greenhouse

Everything is growing really well at the moment, Sarracenia, Drosera and Dionaea are really flying away and you can almost see them grow by the day. We are using a lot of rainwater at the moment as we do every Spring but this year we have had very little rain for what seems like weeks now, we could really do with some in the next few weeks. 

Meanwhile, not forgetting the Nepenthes we have a few very nice large Nepenthes hybrids potted in hanging baskets available now on the website which are well worth a look. If you are looking for an impressive large Nepenthes to fill a gap in a tropical greenhouse, these are the plants for you.

Update on the plants

The warm weather has been great for the plants, most of the Sarracenia have flowered and we are now starting to crossbreed the Sarracenia. As for the Flytraps and Sundews they have new traps and are looking good for our first show of the year Malvern.

We are also very excited for Chelsea flower show where we will create our first island display of Sarraceina hybrids and species. It may be the largest display of Sarracenia ever! We hope that the plants are looking their best and that you can come and see the display it really will be something special as we have been preparing plants for this show for the last two or three years. Also the BBC are coming to the nursery and the show to film, which will be great.
