Hi,
This was already posted in my general open day thread, but started this new thread to ascertain numbers.

Please let me know if you are coming; I need to estimate how much food and other refreshments to prepare.

There are still some plants left and I will be able to divide plants on the day if people want certain plants.


The leucos, alatas, minors and some of the hybrids are pushing very large pitchers right now so they should be peaking by the open day.

I look forward to seeing some of you!

The leucos, alatas, rubras and minors are in great shape! A huge bnew cold frame means the flava/leuco house is clear on the floor now! Thanks to all that sunshine, the colouration is fantastic so looking forward to seeing you all.

Please remember the parking and please keep Field Close (my Cul-de-sac) is clear as its already congested!

Hi Mike

We didnt think that we would be able to make it for this one because of fuel costs, but we decided to bring half of the collection to sell instead.......lmao.......only joking........its a third.....ha ha ha ha..

We are bringing you a few plants off of our wish list for you too :biggrin:

The weather is set to be dry today, so that helps! The large greenhouse with the leucos is in is clear of trays amd the plants are completely cleaned for maximum effect..Food is ready!
