About Me

This website is all about my private collection of carnivorous plants, consisting mainly of Darlingtonia, Dionaea and Sarracenia. I also grow other carnivores including Aldrovanda, Cephalotus, Drosera, Genlisea, Heliamphora, Pinguicula and Utricularia. I first started growing carnivorous plants many years ago now, the first plant being a Venus Fly Trap . Since then the collection has steadily grown and now has almost 500 plants. They are housed in a brand new Elite Supreme 12.5ft x 10.5ft greenhouse, using commercial benching, with another Elite 8ft x 6ft greenhouse on standby when space becomes tight. I have also sown around 500 seeds, all harvested from my own plants.


I collect rainwater and have at any one time 500 litres to hand, which soon runs out in hot weather. I then use reverse osmosis water (available from aquatic centres) and the plants seem to thrive on it.

I am a Moderator on the CPUK Forum, and a Global Moderator on the ICPS Forum.

This website is an ongoing project, and will be updated with photos and information as and when time allows. Have a look around and please feel free to leave me feedback via my "Contact Me" page.
