    Cook's Carniverous Plants ships worldwide I believe. They've got a large selection. But if the guys here ship to the UK, they are your most reliable bet in my opinion. Everyone who has ever ordered from here has had rave reviews of the quality of the plants. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    ********** don't ship to the UK, but there are several UK based nurseries that do, I can recommend these two as places to start:

    Hampshire Carnivores

    South West Carnivores

    Vic
    They say that money talks, but all it ever says to me is goodbye.

    A couple other sources are Triffid Nurseries and also Phil Wilson. I am on the fly today so I don't have the addys right to hand. I'll try to post them a bit later.

    Just moving to a place where you can get a lot more help about it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Cook's does ship worldwide, but without permits!!

    You would be safer buying from the UK ( no need for permits )

    I am hoping we will have our CITES permits in the next few weeks, but still...in order to things the right way, you need import/export permits, and CITES and you need a general import permit to your country PLUS a phytosanitary...

    If you are wanting a few VFT...all the permits will cost around 100$

    If you deal with someone that does not have these permits, or requires you to have these permits, than you are playing a game of chance, and you may or may not get your plants [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    I Know, I know! I ordered from Cook's, and the permit cost of $35 was optional. They just made it clear they could not garuntee anything without it. I was ok with that for the small order it was though. I took my chances, and it took 14 days for my vft's to get here! But although they weren't feeling well, I easily managed to bring them back and they are flourishing (aside from the color which I mentioned in another forum).
