  1. That’s beautiful – and slightly sinister. Also makes me wish I’d got round to building the bog garden I had intended to build alongside the pond! Though from the posh label and all that moss I’m guessing this isn’t in your garden?

    Oh Helen, those are lovely – a few years ago I tried and killed some pitcher plants, but you make me want to try again!

    Janet – you are right these arent in my garden but at the Malvern Autumn show. I have purchased a pitcher plant but not this one, mine is meant to be a good one for beginners!

    gardeningasylum – going on try again we have fail together!

    Oh that guy at the Malvern show was back for fall! He had the best display of bog plants ever! They are native to our area, if we only had a bog on our hillside!

  6. “Good for beginners” sounds good – please tell me that you will be keeping us up-to-date with how you get on? I can feel a new addiction coming on. Plants that eat animals – what’s not to like?!

    They are fascinating. I love the patterns. Mine stay outside during the summer. The tender ones go into the greenhouse for the winter.

    Janet & easygardener – I have bought Sarracenia C V Juthatip Soper, meant to be easy. Told to over winter in cool greenhouse with temps around 5 degrees. We will see!!

    My Sarracenia was in my pond over last winter, and must have seen down to at least -10C! It stayed evergreen. Also there is a huge new carnivorous plant bed at Wisley on the rockery, in which the plants look to be thriving!
