Drosera & Heliamphora Open Day

Recommended Posts

Hi, all

Now that I have sorted things out a little after moving house last January (2009), I can now begin my open days again.

Saturday 6th March 10am to 4pm

So for this year, Im going for an early Open Day, so with luck some of my Tuberous and Pygmy Drosera will still be showing some good growth.

My collections are housed in a 8x12, and 6x8 heated glasshouses, and a 10x25 polytunnel for the Dionaea, Sarracenia, Darlingtonia and temperate growing Drosera, plus several terrariums scattered throughout the house for the Heliamphora, plus my new (still a work-in-progress) propagation basement.

Along with the National Collection Drosera, I also have a good National Collection of Heliamphora, with some rare plants included (like a flowering H. sp. Akopan).

Unlike my past Open Days, where I had to restrict the number of people due to space.

I now have my own house so there is no restriction, so everyone is welcome.

I will also have a selection of plants for sale, and you are all welcome to bring your own plants to sell too.

Please E-mail if you wish to come, so I can sort out teas, and coffee's. And if you require address, directions, phone number etc. [email protected]

Regards

Langy

You can count on me and Dianne be there but we may have the two little ones in tow.

Don't worry they won't bite if they're kept fed and they are used to being banned from grow spaces.

Look forward to seeing you both soon.

Ian.

Hi, all

Well to try and tempt a few more of you to think about comming to my open day, I can now confirm that I will have a few limited numbers of...

Heliamphora minor adult plants

H. heterodoxa adult plants

H. heterodoxa X minor adult plants - hard grown with temps down to 6Deg.C.

H. heterodoxa X nutans

H. folliculata 'Aparoman Tepui' juvenile plants

H. chimantensis juvenile plants

H. huberi 'Amuri Tepui' adult plants

And maybe a few more a little closer to the date.

Also before I get swamped with emails, and PM's. Im not mail ordering (or reserving) these plants for at least another 2 months.

Regards

Langy

Well thanks to all who came along Saturday, it was good to see you all.

Ian thanks for the photos, I didnt realise you were running round with your camera so much!

I hope the little-ones didnt get too bored, although you were right about them eating, I'd probably get them check out for Tapeworm or something. All that food needs to go somewhere...!

Anyway, I hope to see some of you around a few other meetings this year.

Regards

Langy
