As you have been able to follow throughout the year, rescue lurcher Billy has settled in, and seems a happy dog. He is still the fastest dog we have seen/met on the beach!! In the 2019 season he has been to nearly as many talks as we have, as he still does not like to be left alone!! He now fetches squeaky pigs, sheep and a sprout as well.
The 2019 season has been great, with new and bigger shows, and another Chelsea gold medal. Going for our 3rd in 2020 (fingers crossed). Show dates are all now listed on our website, as well as the open weekends for the coming season!! The winter break seems to have missed us again. We are now full up with polytunnels and greenhouses, and the plant collection is growing out of proportion.
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.
