We are a small, North-Yorkshire based, nursery, and we grow, display and sell Carnivorous Plants at Shows and Fairs. We started as a backyard nursery in Knaresborough, and moved to the beautiful village of Scampston in 2015 to enable us to grow the nursery. When we started up, our shows were mainly in Yorkshire, but we have now gone further afield. The 2017 season has been great for our displays, taking part in several RHS Flower Shows as well as our local Harrogate Flower Shows and the Great Yorkshire Show. We have achieved good awards all season and are particularly proud of winning best in show at RHS Harlow Carr Flower Show and our 1st RHS Gold Medal at the 1st RHS Chatsworth Flower Show. The 2018 season has been great so far, with highlights being awarded a gold medal at our first Chelsea RHS Flower Show and Best in Show at the Great Yorkshire Show, with Harrogate Autumn Flower Show and Malvern Flower Show to come.
Peter Walker (Wack) and his long suffering assistant (and wife) Helleentje, run the business.Peter started many years ago with a love of plants in general, but always with a special interest in unusual and/or exotic varieties. After stumbling across a nursery selling pitcher plants (while on holiday in Whitby!), we caught the carnivorous bug!
We sell our plants at shows and fairs – for specific shows and dates see ‘Shows & Fairs’ -, and online. We are happy for people to visit the nursery, but strictly by appointment only, please.
Other than plants we also sell photo’s, T-shirts, compost, pots and other sundries, which are available in our online shop.
- Care and advice with every plant sold that is easy to follow.
- Carefully packaged plants to ensure they arrive in the same exceptional condition they left us in.
- We create the ideal compost for all your carnivorous plants and sell it in a variety of pack sizes.
