  1. Hi,

    I am trying to get hold of some BEF "long-tom" pots, does anyone have any used ones they want to sell, or do you know of a supplier? The size I want are labelled BEF grower's pot no.4 long tom and measure 4" (10.5cm) across the top and are 5" (12.5cm) tall, rigid brown plastic.

    contact me by PM or email [email protected] if you can help,

    thanks,

    James


  2. Thanks for all answers so far(more always welcome!) following the catesbeai x purpuea suggestion I checked this plant against photos of this cross on Hampshire CP's website and it is identical-could well be the same clone. I'm pretty sure the leuco hybrid is not farnhamii, apologies that its not a great pitcher in the photo but all the largest ones have already died baack, I have a vague recollection I once saw this hybrid at another garden centre labelled "black- something?", or at least some name referencing its' dark colouration (prince?, knight?, not sure now, something like that.) The mitchelliana was unlabelled and was growing in the standard garden centre peat mix in a cheap plastic pot (container).

    I'll let you know if I find out more.

  3. Hi all,

    I visited my local garden centre today and they had an end of season sale on their cp's, everything £1 each to clear, but most with incorrect labels, I took a chance on several, can anyone put a name to them?

    No1 - purpurea hybrid?

    No2 - purpurea venosa, could it be burkii?

    No3 - mitcheliana?

    No4 - leucophylla hybrid-I'm sure I've seen this one at other garden centres with a cultivar name-anyone recognise it?

    Any suggestions gratefully recieved!

  4. Hi all,

    Can anyone put a name to this unknown hybrid I recently got in an exchange, probably garden centre origin ?, bought by the origional owner some years ago with the label "wherryii" but clearly isn't! (she recently offered it on ebay as "Cressii" but admits that was a mis-reading of the faded label. if anyone can put a name to it please get in touch! I wondered if there is some catesbeai in there somewhere? although the pitchers are far too narrow, maybe involves alata also? any ideas?
