Welcome to our upgraded website. The only thing that has really changed is the webshop, with a more professional look and feel, as well as new plants and added features like a wishlist and option to print your care leaflets. We welcome your feedback!!
In our lives the main change has been rescue lurcher Billy, who at about 2 years old has joined Wack’s Wicked Plants in the role of ball fetcher. Boy can he run!!
Looking forward to the 2019 season, which has a new show (RHS Cardiff), as well as our 2nd outing to RHS Chelsea Flower Show and many others. We have been busy in the winter season (when is the winter break?? – have we missed it??) with new polytunnel and new 2nd hand greenhouse.
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.
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.
