IMPORTANT...Please read....

Please note that ALL PLANT ORDERS are made up each WEEKEND and despatched on the first Monday after your order is received.

For ALL Orders for EU Destinations we strongly recommend that you purchase the TRACKED option for your parcel (This can be found under the SHIPPING OPTIONS section.)

PLANT BUYERS: During the autumn and winter months most of the plants (except Nepenthes) will go through into their winter dormant state. This means they are smaller, less spectacular, pitcher-less or even just root stock, rhizome or hibernaculae. As a result they can look somewhat underwhelming compared to their summer glory! Please bear this in mind when buying plants at this time of year. New growth will of course resume in the spring. Similarly, VENUS FLY TRAPS make awful Xmas presents for the same reason!

NEWS: I am afraid that we can no longer send seeds to Japan due to Japanese Import Regulations.

If you have any concern about your order, please email us directly.

If you can't find what you are looking for, email us and we will do our best to source it for you.

ALSO AVAILABLE - Soil mixes specificially for Carnivorous Plants

Superb Collection of Antique Carnivorous Plant prints and lithographs available for the true Collector.

Growing Nepenthes from seed.

Growing Nepenthes from seed.

Recently we have been able to source some fantastically rare and more importantly, fresh Nepenthes seeds from some experienced growers abroad. Species like N.lowii, edwardsiana and more recently, N. macrophylla have all been offered and have generated much interest.
To successfully germinate these Nepenthes seeds requires very specific conditions and, in my opinion, some degree of experience too, and I am always being asked how best to cultivate them.
I usually refer people to either our Trif ... More >>
