Looking good now
Through the Woodland and on the Systematic Beds, hoops of orange and yellow crown imperial bells sporting a tuft of bright green leaves are standing in joyful crowds.

Carnivores

Apologies, this House is currently closed for renovation.
This Display House is devoted to carnivorous plants. These plants grow in nitrogen-poor environments and obtain this essential nutrient from insect protein. Carnivorous plants have evolved several times and use different methods to trap their prey – sticky, glandular leaf hairs in Sundews (Drosera), slimy leaf surfaces in Pinguicula, leaf pitchers in Sarracenia. They all require lime- and nitrogen-free water so must be maintained using rain water.
