  1. Hi everyone, I am having another open day as usual to coincide with the peak of autumn pitchers of Sarracenia leucophylla, minor, rubra, alata and hybrids. As usual, there will be plants for sale and I will be able to divide some rare plants to order on the day Please feel free to bring plants for sale and swap (please remember me!) and refreshment s will be provided. Please note the earlier the time this year! Looking forward to seeing you. Mike & Helen King
  2. Thanks everyone who made it. We think somewhere between 50 and 60 people turned up. In case anyone was wanting to come, I am having another open day this weekend starting from 10am.
  3. Hi everyone, Now that spring is finally under way with lots of strong growth, I am pleased to announce here my open day. There will be plenty to see with an expansion of the collection, a wide selection of plants in the sales house, plenty of food and refreshments and parking enough for 22 cars on our drive as we found out last year! Please bring plants for sale and swap and also, please remember me as I am actively collecting too! Please let me know if you are coming and we can prepare enough food etc.

  7. Hi everyone, I will be holding my autumn open day on Saturday, 14th of October. As usual, there will be plenty of food and refreshments, plants for sale and also parking as at the last open day, we accommodated 22 cars on the drive! Please feel free to bring your own plants for sale or swap. I will be dividing rare plants on the day and please feel free also to swap with me if you have anything interesting! Please let me know if you are able to come so we can buy in the right amount of food and drinks.
  8. Hi Stu, The ones in the sphagnum are unnumbered clones. They were all originally from seed from the Sandy Creek site.
  9. Don't suppose you can manage a brunch for 4 hungry travelers at around 12? ;-D
  10. It's too early to say, but when I was in the Okefenokee Swamp, the best minors were in the water too.
  11. Thanks very much for your kind comments. The psitts are sat in around 80 mm of water and the tray is 100 mm deep. They are indeed in just water and sphagnum.
