  1. I usually try to negotiate a good deal, or leave them there
  2. Depends on what you're using it for. I use horticultural sand where needed, but tend to stick to peat, perlite and sphagnum moss for the vast majority of my plants.
  3. My plants new home

    They are really useful, I use several but do need to tie them to a wall with rope as they easily blow over
  4. River water with Sarras.?

    Are you able to pop into an aquarium shop? As they tend to sell r/o water pretty cheaply, which could help you out better longer term until there's some good rainfall to build up your supply.
  5. A Highland Terrarium

    Definitely have a look on eBay or similar. A vivarium can make an excellent terrarium, and often has the light fittings already in place - they maintain good humidity whilst still being well ventilated.
  6. I so want one of these N. Bicelcarata

    I keep a Bicalcarata in my terrarium, it's just got its first proper fanged pitchers this year. So far, it seems quite easy to keep as long as it's warm and humid it's quite happy.
  7. RHS Harlow Carr CP weekend 13 & 13th August

    We're heading up to Harlow Carr on Sunday - hopefully there will be some nice plants for sale.
  8. birds

    Has anyone got any spare blackbird catching and eating plants?
  9. I'll definitely have to go over and have a look, to see their collection and have a look at what else they sell. Somewhere I've kept meaning to go to see what they have, but never got there even though I only live in Glossop.
  10. Thanks, very useful to know as it's only a couple of miles from me.
  11. Spent Compost

    I just add it to the compost bins and use it on the allotment and in the garden
  12. New water butt

    I'd sure I said something like that, but a polytunnel, growhouses, a large terrarium later...
  13. Flys

    The ones that I have at the allotment in the polytunnel are catching loads, but I do have to donate half a side of the tunnel to fruit and veg plants, but the tomatoes seem to attract loads of flies. The ones I've got at home though are catching very little yet this year though.
  14. Finding wild plants map

    Thanks, they're really interesting. I've just discovered the thread for the UK map, the website is http://bsbi.org/maps.
  15. A while ago someone posted a link of an interactive map that showed rough areas to find specific plants. Unfortunately I've been unable to locate the thread, and am wondering if anyone can help me with the web address for it.
