growing medium


Recommended Posts

I've just bought some venus fly trap seeds and hoping to grow a plant, but i can't find a suitable growing medium.  a site suggested sphagnum peat moss, but i can't find anywhere that sells it.  most garden centres  have never heard of sphagnum, and one person at Homebase had heard of it, but  they dont have any.  is it banned in the UK?

Try independent garden centres rather than chains. That being said, I think B&Q used to stock the small packet of sphagnum moss by Gardman, as it's used in hanging baskets for water retention.

If you can't find any locally, there are a few guys that sell portions on ebay.
