There have been times when I could have used a garden full of these. LOL Probably why I haven’t done much gardenng lately
I have only had them a couple of days but the greenhouse they are in seems more fly-free already!
That’s the best kind of pest control to have. I’ve noted that the plants seem to have become very popular in the Pacific Northwest but not so much here in hotter, drier Southern California.
They look fabulous…have read up about them, and considered them. Where did you acquire them from?
Although fascinated, I knew little about them, Noelle, but my interest was piqued when Monty talked about them recently and there were some nurseries listed at the end of an article in GW. Mine were from Hampshire Carniverous Plants which I chose because you could buy them as ‘collections’ and didn’t have to make a decision on which to buy. Very good quality – and aren’t they pretty?!
Cathy the most beautiful and wonderful pest control that exists in the world. And the most ecological. We are enthralled watching them and grow. And there are different varieties. For the greenhouses the best. And here in the field in Spain with flies I will see in the Plant Nursery of Soria if they have them. But I bring them next year from Madrid well grown. Thanks for teaching us your exterminators. Greetings from Margarita.
They are new to me, Margarita, but I love the colours and a bit of fly catching will be useful too!
I am always fascinated by these when I see them at shows Cathy. However I think I probably saw the same clip as you on ‘Gardener’s World’ and was put off when Monty did some plant maintenance and we saw their innards 🙂
Hopefully I can tolerate that part of it, Anna!
