Welcome to Triffid Nurseries - The Carnivorous Plant Store
MAJOR NEWS!.....IT IS WITH MIXED EMOTIONS THAT I HAVE TO ANNOUNCE MY IMMINENT RETIREMENT FROM THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF CARNIVOROUS PLANTS. SOMETIME THIS YEAR I PLAN TO 'HANG UP MY GLOVES' AND CONCENTRATE ON OTHER THINGS.
IN THE MEANTIME, ITS BUSINESS AS USUAL !!!
We now send out all UK Plant orders using DPD Local!!! Faster, Safer, Better Parcel Handling and Traceability.
Plant Buyers....During the winter many CP sps go DORMANT. Some die right back to root stock, whilst others reduce in size and/or form hibernacula (resting buds). Please bear this in mind when placing orders from November to March.
Seed Buyers...We strongly recommend that you select the 'Tracking' option when placing your seed order (located under Shipping Options) since refunds cannot be made for "missing/undelivered" packets unless the original packet has been returned to us.
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.
