Here at Hampshire carnivorous plants, we have been growing carnivorous plants for some thirty-five years and for the last 22 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 one 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 moved to our currant site 8 years ago in Lower Upham, Near Winchester where the plants are now housed in 1/2 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)
