CACTI, SUCCULENTS and CARNIVOROUS PLANTS
Undoubtedly some of the MOST loved and MOST popular plants these days would fall into this category. Often the doorway into the world of plants begins with the purchase of a tiny Succulent, a spiky Cactus or an alluring Venus flytrap. Wondrous little plants, that are incredibly forgiving when it comes to care and attention and yet so rewarding with their eye catching colour, shape and form.
These days they are right in Vogue with the focus on 'Low water use' and Low maintenance' plants. They look fantastic grouped together on a deck, in a large bowl as a collection, or individually atop the patio table. They can be grown indoors and some of the hardier succulents and cacti can be grown out in the Garden.
The Carnivorous plants are in a class of their own and there are some SERIOUS collectors among us. There is just something incredibly 'captivating' about them !!! Every child that comes into the Nursery is immediately drawn to them, and we think they are a wonderful portal into the interesting life of unusual plants in general. The amazing Pitcher plants (Nepenthes & Sarracenias), Venus Fly traps and Sundews are all unique and marvelous in their own special way. We tend to carry our Fly traps most of the year, with the others making an appearance whenever we can source them. We always have a beautiful range of large potted Carnivorous plants over the Xmas period, as they make very popular Gifts.
We stock all the specialised Potting mixes for these plants as well as Peat Moss, Copra Peat and Vermiculite which can also be incorporated in their mixes. We can assist you with questions on their growing requirements and special needs anytime you are in the Nursery.
Cacti, Succulents and Carnivorous plants are endlessly fascinating and are well worth adding to your garden list of 'must haves' . They make a great living gift as they are loads of fun , very quirky, and.... easy to keep alive!!!!
