  1. Once it’s in order, and up to date then we will be looking for a new volunteer, but currently it’s just a case of organising it, ordering in new seed (I’m in the process of doing so) and getting orders out. However, the task is rather a lot bigger than I had originally anticipated. Actually putting together the orders isn’t going to be too bad once it’s sorted, as I’ve already got everything prepared for them
  2. After having given up the seedbank back in July to another member due to severe ill health (which is still extremely bad), it was finally returned to me last week and very quickly got to the new volunteer. However the new volunteer has now returned it within days as decided they did not want to do the role. I am starting to deal with the backlog and aim to get these orders out as soon as possible, however I am having to sort it all out back into a useable format as it has come back in rather a mess to say the least, so took me over 1hour to find 4 individual packets - I had hoped to do the orders before ordering it all but this has proven impossible. I’m hoping to have finished sorting it back into alphabetical order in the next day or two and then I will be getting the outstanding seed orders out - realistically I’m expecting it to take me another day or two to finish organising it. I am also in the process of hunting down new seed, so if anyone has seed for sale please let me know. I am exceptionally sorry to all who have been affected, and please be assured I will not let it affect your new membership year’s entitlement

  6. You can collect them once they turn black, or you can allow them to split open themselves but you’ll find Capensis growing in with absolutely everything. If you collect them you can either crumple the outer shell or tap them in some paper to collect the seed

  10. The Carnivorous Plant Society will be at RHS Harlow Carr Gardens on Saturday 10th August and Sunday 11th August, for the Carnivorous plant weekend, along with Wacks Wicked Plants. There will be talks and demonstrations. Free entry to CPS members on production of a valid membership card.
  11. We have been accepted for The RHS Tatton Flower Show this year, running from Wed 17th July until Sun 21st July. If anyone would like to help out for a day or more on the Carnivorous Plant Society stand, please do let me know as soon as possible and I can give you more details. Thanks
  12. Thanks Dunc, it’s mainly Neps and possibly a few tropical Drosera I’m wanting to keep in there. Due to space in the house I’m having to get rid of my terrarium but the greenhouse has arrived, so I’m just waiting on my friend to help me erect it.
  13. Since moving and having space, I’ve now obtained a 6x4 greenhouse (glass and aluminium) that we’re planning on heating for tropical carnivorous plants (although they do have to share it with my Mum’s orchids). What is the best way to insulate it? Summer time won’t be an issue but I’m thinking come winter time it will benefit from being insulated.
  14. Try the local garden centres, I bought a small bag in one near us.
  15. DATE :- Saturday 25th May 2019 TIME:- 12pm - 5pm PLACE:- East Horsley Village Hall Kingston Avenue East Horsley Leatherhead  KT24 6QT
  16. Everyone is still a member
  17. I will put this suggestion to the rest of the committee, Dunc.
  18. Temperate plants in dormancy should be fine, but I wouldn’t buy tropical plants to come through the postal system at this time of year.
  19. At least some of them should still come up fine. I don't usually expect to see germination until April or May from my Sarracenia seeds, that I tend to sow around Christmas time and place in an unheated polytunnel.
