About us

We are a small, North-Yorkshire based, specialist nursery, and we grow, display and sell Carnivorous Plants at Shows and Fairs and at the nursery. 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. We display our plants in several RHS Flower Shows as well as our local Harrogate Flower Shows and the Great Yorkshire Show. We are particularly proud of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show Gold medal at our first attempt! By now we have 3 Chelsea Gold Medals and many more RHS golds. To achieve what we said we wanted right from the start (Best in Show at the Great Yorkshire Show) was brilliant.

Peter Walker (Wack) and his long suffering assistant (and wife) Helleentje, run the business, together with Billy the rescue lurcher. 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.

These beet red pitcher plants really stood out amongst all the others pitcher plants. I’ve never seen anything quite like them. The colors were so deep and saturated they seemed to glow, and were almost hard to look at - kind of like staring into a black light. They are a reddish color variant of Sarracenia x moorei, which is a Sarracenia flava x leucophylla cross (I think). This is just another example of the extreme biodiversity of these bogs.

To help protect these rare and ecologically sensitive bogs, I do not share locations. Also - no AI was used to generate this image.
