I love it that you have these as softer plants! The pitchers are especially impressive and I agree they are *less* spiky, but I think that they are still on the spiky side of soft, perhaps I'm biased coming from the roses and sweet peas end of the spectrum.
Beautiful photographs! The pitcher plants look similar to the ones grown on the east coast of Canada [Cape Breton]. It's been a dream of mine to visit England [and Kew], and this just confirms it. I must come some day. Thanks for posting!Amy
Oxslip: The pitchers was huge and it was interesting to have an expert there showing the different methods they use to lure insects inside.Amy: Thank you
