Welcome to Triffid Nurseries
The Carnivorous Plant Store.
COVID-19 Update for EU CUSTOMERS ONLY.....We have been informed that all deliveries to EU countries could now take up to 8 weeks to arrive. This period is too long for LIVE PLANTS so we strongly advise that you delay placing any PLANT order for the foreseeable future.
UK Customers are still 'Good to Go' though!!
Plant Buyers....Plants are now going dormant for the Winter. Some die right back to root stock, whilst others reduce in size and/or form hibernacula. Please bear this in mind when placing orders from November to March.
Triffid Nurseries, founded in 1999, supplies a wide range of quality carnivorous plants and seeds suitable for both the enthusiast and beginner alike. We are very proud to boast the largest selection of carnivorous plant seeds held in stock, on the web! Well over 250 different species, hybrids, clones and varieties.
Triffid Nurseries is located in Suffolk in a purpose-built, Kader growhouse covering over 3700 sq. feet - all dedicated to the fascinating world of carnivorous plants - The Food Chain in Reverse!
The vast majority of our business is mail order with seed orders dispatched worldwide and plants sent throughout Britain and Europe. We regret that we are unable to send live plants outside of Europe.
PLEASE NOTE that visits to the Nursery are by APPOINTMENT ONLY, so please call or email us to arrange a suitable time.
All Plants are sent BARE-ROOTED (except Pygmy sundews & temperate Utrics)
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.
