Welcome to our website, still a work in progress. For care leaflets, please click here Care Leaflets
Here we are, 2021, and the world has not yet returned to normal. I imagine everything has changed for most people, and we are all adjusting to a new life, without crowds/shows, no hugs, social distancing. Eagerly awaiting vaccination so I can hug people!! Luckily Billy seems as happy as he was before, even though he has not been to the beach anymore. Thanks to you, all our lovely customers, online sales have kept us going, and we are still open by appointment only. There have been some changes to our website, including new logo lettering (a bit more modern) and Wacks recommends section.
This is obviously another different season. We won’t be doing many shows this year, we are hopeful for Harrogate spring which will be an outdoor event. There will also be several open weekends at the nursery – watch facebook for dates!! We are full up with polytunnels and greenhouses, and the plant collection is growing (has grown) out of proportion, especially as we had our stock ready for the show season. We are very lucky though, having the time to watch them grow. Most of what is happening in the world passes us by, while we work on the nursery, do water runs, pack boxes, and simply walk around our stunning plants.
Keep safe everybody
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 2018 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 gold awards all season and are particularly proud of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show Gold medal at our first attempt! To achieve what we said we wanted right from the start (Best in Show at the Great Yorkshire Show) was also a great feeling. In 2019 we did it all again, achieving another Chelsea gold, as well as a 2nd Best in Show at the Great Yorkshire Show, and many other gold medals. 8 RHS gold medals so far …
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.
