March 12, 2018 – Growing Carnivorous Plants – Jeff Dallas and Jacob Farin

03MarchCarnivorousPlantsOf all the plants intriguing to home gardeners, carnivorous plants tend to be among the most misunderstood and frequently killed when we first attempt to grow them. This is sad, because once folks are able to navigate past the misconceptions and myths about them, they can be some of the most interesting and beautiful plants in a garden, particularly here in the Pacific Northwest. In some cases they can actually be easier to grow than typical garden plants. Jeff Dallas, co-owner of Sarracenia Northwest carnivorous plant nursery, will help you get past these misconceptions. Come learn about commonly available species, care, pests and different applications of carnivorous plants in garden and home settings.
