Derek Clavell-Bate is open on Saturday 2nd June 2012 from 2.00 - 5.00 pm near Launceston in Cornwall. Details in the CPS newsletter, on last years thread (on this forum), or I expect Derek will post them here later.
Dennis Balsdon is opening the next day, Sunday 3rd June 2012 from 10.00am to 5.00 pm in Paingnton. Details in last years thread, but I expect Dennis will post them here as well shortly.
In between, I am again holding a barbeque on saturday evening from 6.00 pm. All welcome. It makes it slightly easier for catering if you can let me know if you are coming but don't worry if you don't manage it, just turn up!
Last week I wasn't sure there was going to be anything to see, but things are beginning to move.
Sarracenia alata in bud. If we are lucky the flowers will be perfect on the day!
Sarracenia oreophila pitchers coming up.
In the last few days the first seed has started to germinate.
Last years seedlings starting to move. The older ones are starting to look a bit more interesting.
The collection here is mostly Sarracenia. A few Pinguicula flowering at the moment, but I think they will be over by June. One or two sundews, a Drosophilum and a dead Heliamphora.
If you can't get here, or want to get a look at the collection in advance it is mostly on the website.
I'm a bit more organised this year and have split some of the plants, so there will be a few for sale. Anybody who wants to bring plants to sell is very welcome, it all adds to the fun.
Look forward to seeing you!
