Hi Folks

On July 2nd and 3rd July the largest carnivorous plant sales event ever held in the UK will be taking place at the EEE 2011 at Chester Zoo.

In addition to the CPS display and national collection holder displays the following traders have stands:

Extreme Plants
The Flytrap Plants
Phil Green
Shropshire Sarracenias
Steve Taverner
Simon Lumb
Sarracenia Nurseries
James O’Neill
Derek Clavell-Bate
Andreas Wistuba
Hampshire Carnivorous Plants

This will be a great opportunity to get those plants you've always wished you had.

There will be superb talks by leading CP botanists, growers and broadcasters. The CPS is also arranging family/children centred activities and of course the whole zoo is open.

So if you haven't yet booked your tickets get your order in now via the EEE website www.EEE2011.co.uk. The event is open to members of any CPS society worldwide (who get a ticket for £7.50 - £8 if paid by PayPal) and to non members, family and friends ( who can get a ticket for £13.50 - £14 if paid by PayPal). Both give access to the zoo on both days of the EEE. Normal entry to the zoo for both days for an adult costs £32.

If people turn up on the day can they still enter? I know that they wouldn't benefit from the discount.

Yes. It would cost £16 for one day on the door I believe.
