  4. 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

  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. That’s fab, thanks. I’ll definitely do that
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Try the local garden centres, I bought a small bag in one near us.
  14. DATE :- Saturday 25th May 2019 TIME:- 12pm - 5pm PLACE:- East Horsley Village Hall Kingston Avenue East Horsley Leatherhead  KT24 6QT
  15. Everyone is still a member
  16. I will put this suggestion to the rest of the committee, Dunc.
  17. We will be doing so.
  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.
  20. I’m always attracted to the plants ‘sick bay’ as well in gardens centres. I just refer to them as hybrids, as you can’t guarantee that they are what you think, especially if you trade divisions of them in the future. There are many cultivars which look very similar to each other, or seed grown plants that are almost identical to a particular cultivar, which they definitely aren’t. Always better to be safe.
  21. We’re Dark Peak, so that explains why it’s so low for us. A total godsend in this dry weather
