  1. For those who couldn't attend, here's a shot we took. All the best, Steve & Eira
  2. Many thanks Mike! Hope that you have a successful day. All the best, Steve & Eira
  3. Hi Mike - any chance of Eira and I coming 'early doors' as we'll be running the pub from noon onward. All the best, Steve
  4. I doubt it'll go off - it's already been in the peat bog awhile! On a different note - I was talking to some Irish lads in the pub and they were amazed how difficult this stuff was to find in the UK. They said that the Irish are using this for fueling their power stations! Some much for the tree-huggers mentality? All the best, Steve
  5. Well - I've had some cider - but if you drill a hole on the side won't it all empty out? You need the airlock to control the flow? Steve
  6. Hi folks, Moss peat is getting harder to find, so just a 'heads up' that I purchased several bales of Shamrock Irish Moss peat today from Beechcroft Nursery near Stourbridge in the West Midlands. It claims to be 20 mins out of Birmingham - but I came across from Shropshire. It was £8.79 / 125l bale. They seemed to have plenty of stock, but it'd be worth ringing ahead if you're making the trip. http://www.beechcroft.com/ All the best, Steve
  7. Just pre-ordered mine on Amazon - it's saying release on the 20th August, but if you opt for the free P&P it's more like the end of the month. http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1607744104/ref=dra_a_sm_mr_hn_it_P1200_1000?tag=dradis-21

    My Drosera

    Fantastic plants and photos - particularly liked the small red one (third piccy down) Steve
  9. HI Mike - hope that everyone had a good day today - sorry it was only a flying visit, we were back for 11.30 and open at noon! Top display, as always. Thanks for your hospitality and the new acquisitions. All the best, Steve (& Eira)

    Asda Drosera

    Hi Fred - nope I paid £8.00 for it. Now I know you'll probably say it's dead common and should be cheap as chips - but I'm used to buying stuff over the internet - paying around £4 P&P for some small specimen to be trapped in the dark for a couple of days, so I didn't think it was too bad to pay that for the full potted plant. Having said that - it was an impulse purchase - I was just surprised to see it! The VFTs were four plants in a pot that could be split down and the Sarracenia looked like a Purpurea cross - first time I've seen CPs for sale in a mainstream supermarket like ASDA (although they do have some in Dobbies garden center, which I think is owned by Tesco).

    Asda Drosera

    Couldn't resist buying this from Asda (Shrewsbury) yesterday - made a nice change to the usual weekly provisions. They had Sarracenia and VFTs too. Can anyone ID this - no doubt it's something cheap and cheerful. Nice to see a supermarket offering CPs - hope that it builds interest and they all find good homes! Steve
  12. Hi Mike, What are your times? I see from your website it starts at noon - which is, unfortunately when I'm running the pub - do you go on all afternoon? All the best, Steve (& EIra)
  13. Thanks for the advice guys - will tackle the worst and see how it goes. Steve
