G.F.P. Carnivorous Plant Calendar 2015

20 Jul 2014

Posted by Smir8810 in Carnivorous Plant Societies

Dear CP lovers,


since 2007 the German Carnivorous Plant Society (G. F. P. - Gesellschaft für Fleischfressende Pflanzen im deutschsprachigen Raum e. V.) yearly publishes a calendar of photos of carnviorous plants taken by society members and also other skilled photographers printed in very high quality. Some of you surely know about this and have also purchased one or the other of these calendars.

I´m happy tp present you the calendar for the year 2015:


Please visit this page to see previews of the calender 2015 




It´s 30 x 45 cm in size, printed on 250 g glossy photo paper, 13 sheets (title plus 12 months), process-colour printing, double loop wire binding with hanger, black back cardboard 380 g, transperancy film covering title


Run: 300 copies


Price: 12,50 EUR (equals £9,90).

Available at: Kalenderversand [dot] GFP [at] gmail [dot] com (delete the brackets and spaces in front of and behind the "@" in your address line, please) :-) I have not activated Spam filters to make sure everyone who seriously wants to get a copy of the calendar will reach me via his email address. But I want to annoy Spam robots, I hope you understand.


Shipment costs:


1 copy can be sent as extra large letter for 8,00Eur (£6,34) everywhere in Europe (also Switzerland and other non EU countries).


2 copies are best shipped as two extra large letters each for 7,00 EUR everywhere in Europe. 3 - 6 calendars need to be shipped as a parcel for 17,00 EUR postage inside European Union.

Outside Europe it´s of course even more expensive! There are various zones for the rest of the world for the German Post with graduated shipment costs. For example one parcel (3-6 calendars) to the United States will cost 36,00 EUR.

After mail order (email) you´ll receive a reply your order has entried. I have not installed an auto reply so it may take a couple of hours `til I reply. If you shouldn´t receive a reply from me within 48 hours please contact me here via pm. In that case I haven´t received your email order for what reason ever.


By your order please give me the name (at least surname) of the addressee (most likely yourself) and his (your) full address including the country you live in. And please mention the number of copies you wish to have.

Payment is possible via international bank transfer or by PayPal (additional fees are due - normally 1,9% to 3,5% of the total amount you transfer + 0,35 EUR). It´s necessary to pay in advance.


I hope I have announced all relevant details on this calendar and how to get it. If not please ask me I´m a very patient man! ;-)


The calendar is bilingual (German/English). You´ll see the abbreviations of the weekdays (Monday to Sunday) (upper line German, lower line English), the calender weeks below and the number of the days in the last line.


All important German bank holidays are also mentioned.

On the back side of the title you´ll find an imprint also in German and English which gives you an overview of the photos and the photographers and also details about the shown plant(s) and the location where these pictures were taken.


*Uff* A lot of stuff to tell you.


I hope you´ll enjoy the calendar.


Kindest regards from the calendar team.

Carnivorous plants day in Fribourg - Switzerland

12 Jul 2014

Posted by vincent in Open Days & Events

Hi everyone,
In case you're around Switherland on the 17th August, join us!
The idea is to have people meet, exchange, sale or buy.   ;-)

Last time Andrea Wistuba was there with quite a lot of nice plants.

Everybody is welcome!
If you plan to come with many plants to sell, thanks to let me know, in order that we reserve you some space.

PICs from Les,s openday

27 Jul 2014

Posted by elvis in Open Days & Events
I was one of the Lucky few who attended Les,s open day yesterday
Aside from nearly being "roasted alive" in his greenhouse it was ,again, a great day

LES grows alot of plants from seed & always has 100s of seedlings for sale
at ridiculously low prices ( inm sure the pot & label are worth more than his asking price!!)
As usual Les was selling lots of divisions from his "Top-shelf" plants
A twin crown "Goldie" was on offer for £20!!!!!
As space is an issue for Les (as it is for us all) he also had a round 20 mature plants, which he was GIVING AWAY!! FREE!!! ( THAT INCLUDED THE EXPENSIVE POTS & TAGS!!!)
There were plants on sale from some of the attendees too & M.King also arrived with a tray full of "Good stuff!!"

Despite all of the above, less than 10 people visited!!!
Maybe its "the wrong time of month" with skool holidays just starting, but this really is an open day to Go to
heres a few pics,

shout out for les burdett

14 Jul 2014

Posted by paul y in Open Days & Events

hi all hope we are all well, I travelled up to pj plants with les Saturday and stopped off at ians, on the road les told me that he is moving to edit not Essex but somewhere end edit next year and this open day will be his last in the west country,  so in the fashion of going out with a bang les has asked me to go on here and DEMAND your presence at his open day!

seriously though if you are in the western side of the uk and can make it then please do so and bring as much to sell swap or give away as possible.

les may well not have an open day for a season or two as he will need to construct the worlds biggest polytunnel, and if you have ever met les you will know he is genuinely the nicest bloke you could meet and deserves a big turn out.

I can accommodate a few people in terms of pick ups from train station and lift to and from les house you just need to get to Bristol temple meads in plenty of time.

I can set up a 2 man bivvy in the garden if you need to crash overnight.

so in short, time to lie to the boss at work (distant relatives die all the time!)  make some excuses to the wife (my mates a florist I can arrange cheap "im sorry" bunches of flowers)  or bring the wife I will be selling flowering plants so there will be something pretty to soften the blow.

nigels nursery is just round the corner from les, I will speak to nigel about a detour there in the evening?  he may well be too busy but if he can accommodate people and you haven't been then its an eye opening sight,

regards paul
