Why we launched a Crowdfunder
Since we took over South West Carnivorous Plants in 2021, we learned that to be able to provide our customers with the plants and seeds they love, we need to expand the space of our nursery.
The current location of the nursery has about 300 m2 of greenhouses for growing plants and harvesting seeds, however the maximum capacity for growing more plants has been reached for years and that is why we cannot fully supply the current demand and add more varieties.
Our current glasshouses
We will relocate our nursery to Sidmouth, Devon and install the polytunnels on a 1 acre field surrounded by woodlands and cattle, so our plants will be provided with enough insects. We see lots of opportunities to grow more exclusive species and larger numbers to meet the increasing demand. Also this 1 acre field gives us sufficient opportunity for future expansion.
We will expand the nursery to approximately 600 m2, and buy and install 2 large polytunnels of 250 m2 each and a smaller one of 100 m2, second hand nursery tables, rainwater reservoirs. Unfortunately we can not move the glasshouses they are in right now, because they have had their best time and moving them will destroy them.
How you can support us
Obviously we are quite excited about our new venture and would love to be able to not only provide in the demand of our passionate customers, but also to be able to conserve these amazing exotic plants.
You can support us by donating an amount of your choice to our project and to thank you for your donation, we offer some stunning rewards.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
WE LOOK FORWARD TO GROWING MORE OF YOUR FAVOURITE CARNIVOROUS PLANTS.
