Peter Walker (Wack) has been obsessed with plants for a long time, and has worked in horticulture most of his working life. He has had training in the UK and the Netherlands, and even designed gardens for banks and parks (under the pseudonym Peter from London – well, that’s in England!) in Azerbaijan. He loves unusual (not just carnivorous) plants, and amongst others has a decent collection of Aeoniums. The nursery started as a back garden outfit, with limited space to grow. In 2015 we moved to Scampston, to be able to expand the nursery.
Peter runs the business together with his wife Helleentje, who does love the plants, but is mainly used for her excellent van stacking ability and other organisational talents – probably also her willingness to work for free.
Wack’s Wicked Plants has expanded from displaying and selling at local venues only. We take part in several RHS shows, as well as our original local ones (Harrogate Flower Show, Great Yorkshire Show). In 2017 we received great accolades and are looking forward to the coming season which looks to hold new challenges and adventures!!
Over the years we have responded to our customers’ requests to sell online. Buying carnivorous plants could not be easier….
