Carnivorous Plant Event

Saturday 16th September 11.00am to 4.00pm and Sunday 17th September 12.00pm to 4.00pm

Venus Fly Traps, Monkey Cups, Butterworts, Sundews?

What do they all have in common? They are plants which eat insects!

For the first time the Birmingham Botanical Gardens are hosting a Carnivorous Plant Event.

This will encompass attractive displays, informative talks and a Plant Sales Area.

If you are looking for advice, something pretty, or some pest control for your home, this event will have experience growers providing advice/talks and a plant sales area.

Whether you’re an experienced grower or an interested visitor, there will be something for all.

These fascinating plants have become increasingly popular over the past couple of years and Birmingham Botanical Gardens wants to support this interest by hosting an event.  This event is the first in the Birmingham Botanical Garden history specifically for Carnivorous Plants.

The Birmingham Botanical Gardens have their own permanent display in the Subtropical House, which is always open to the public. This not only delivers an educational service but one Carnivorous Plant enthusiast referred to it as “The best carnivorous display I have ever seen in a Botanical Garden”.

In addition to this the Carnivorous Plant Society will also be constructing a temporary display on the day of the event.
