About us

Mission statement

Our mission is to be recognised leaders in supplying horticultural enthusiasts and the wider community with high quality carnivorous plants and advice, suited to Mediterranean climates. Our knowledge and enthusiasm is focused on promoting cultivation, appreciation and conservation of these unique plants and their natural habitats.

About our nursery

We are a family run carnivorous plant nursery specializing in plants for cultivation in Mediterranean climates. We supply high quality plants, growing accessories and specialist advice. All of our plants are hardened and acclimatized to outside conditions to give you the strongest and most vibrant plants possible.

Our carnivorous plant nursery is located on the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia. The Fleurieu offers amenable climate year round, with four distinct seasons. It is typically Mediterranean with cool winters May to August (between 2 – 18 degrees) and hot dry summers November to March (between 25 – 40 degrees). Annual rainfall is ~645mm, which is about 200mm greater than the closest capital city, Adelaide.

Our family have qualifications in horticulture and over twenty years experience cultivating plants, with a focus on carnivorous plants. We enjoy sharing our passion and experience to help people enjoy and respect these fascinating and rewarding plants.

We regularly take our plants to markets & fairs throughout S.A., as well as operate our online nursery through this website and eBay. Consider following us on Facebook and subscribing to our newsletter for exclusive offers, advice and latest news.
