2019 Open Weekends

Our first open weekend will be on the 20-21 April. This year we will be having potting demonstrations in the morning and afternoon as this is the perfect time of year to do this see many of the plants in full flower and stock up on compost! We will have a huge range of plants for sale and sundry items.

Our open weekend on the 11-12 May will be a fantastic chance to preview our Chelsea display plants which fingers crossed will be at their absolute best and are truly a sight to behold. This is the first time we have had an open weekend this time of year. Our Sarracenia will be a real focal point as we have some of the largest specimen sized plants in Europe which will be looking pristine and ready for the RHS Chelsea flower show. We will have a huge range of plants for sale and sundry items.

The 20-21 July open weekend will show the full colour of all the plants. The Sarracenia flavas and most of the hybrids will have coloured up nicely and the Nepenthes are looking great at this time of the year too. We will have a huge range of plants for sale and sundry items.

And finally, at the 5-6 October open weekend, you will be able to see the leucophllya and any of the hybrids with this species at their absolute best.

Here at Hampshire carnivorous plants, we have been growing carnivorous plants for some thirty-five years and for the last eighteen of those years, exhibiting at  Royal Horticultural Society shows around the country.  During this time we have been awarded in excess of one hundred R.H.S. gold medals (this includes twenty consecutive Chelsea 'Golds')  attaining both the Witan and Anthony Huxley Awards in 1998.  Since 2000 we have won 'Best in Show' awards at Gardening Scotland, Malvern Autumn, BBC Gardeners world live, RHS Tatton Park and National Amateur Gardening Show making us the highest awarded Carnivorous plant nursery in the UK by far! Our highest award to date was The Tudor Rose Award at 2004, 2010 and 2011  Hampton Court Palace flower shows. At the end of September 2016, we were awarded Best in the show for the third time at the RHS Malvern flower show.

We have moved to our new site in Lower Upham, Near Winchester where the plants are now housed in 1/4 acre Venlo greenhouse, the plants get uninterrupted sunlight from sunrise to sunset which is great especially for the Sarracenia and venus fly traps which colour up exceptionally well during the growing season.

We sell an extensive range of top quality carnivorous plants, books, composts and sundry items for both the 'beginner' and the keen enthusiast.  We use an efficient courier service - when plants leave us they arrive with you the next day, and in most cases are sent ready potted.  All of our plants are packed with great care and can be sent out at all times of the year if you wish.

Once your order is received we will acknowledge it by email, so be sure to include this information, together with a contact mobile telephone number, we can then advise you each step of the way, right through to dispatch and arrival date.  Any special instructions, like say, where your parcel should be left should you not be at home, or any particular day you would like it to arrive can be accommodated. (With the exclusion of weekends and Bank Holidays) 

If you would prefer to visit the nursery to pick your plants up yourself please call Matthew on 07703258296 to arrange a day and time to come over, we have many varieties that are not on the webshop!
