They don't have much choice and i can get them cheaper on a different site.

The best site iv used is triffidnurseries.
A nice big selection, and the best customer service iv ever recieved.

Iv also used bugtraps which redirects you to easycarnivours.
I got a flytrap from there which was soaking wet when I got it. The traps were in quite a bad condition. They also don't answer emails or messages that you leave them. Although I did get a s.purpurea from there which was in good condition. Guess it's a lucky dip with them. I won't be using them again though.

There is a site called triffidtraps.co.uk but I havnt used this yet

I'm not in the UK but I would think the VFT shop would be a good choice I know they have some nice and rare plants.

to get some of the amazing plants they have here in the FTStore wouldn't be possible without some kind of permit and lots of other messing around in quarantine and not to mention a nice big price tag for all off this.

i think the only way it could work, on the money side of things, is if a few of us UK'ers got together and all chipped in to get some stuff all sent together to one person and then when received it they could send it on to us via uk post.
although im not sure if the permit would be for each plant or if the permit is for a group of plants sent together :?

http://www.czplants.com has a huge array of venus fly trap clones; they are based in the Czech Republic but can ship within the EU without the need for permits (simply because they are within and a part of the EU). The shipping can get costly but the quality of the plants far outweighs any costs incurred with shipping.

Should you choose to buy with them please make sure you choose the correct size of the plant you want and that you only have one of a particular plant in your basket (unless you want multiple plants) as on occasion I've clicked to buy a single plant and it put two in my basket. They also have free plants/items available depending on the cost of your order.

Mr. Kubin and I have spoken on various occasions and the customer service is fantastic if you have any doubts or queries.

That's a pretty interesting idea, would likely take a while to coordinate but would definately be worth looking into in the future. I do think you only need one phytosanitary certificate per order, though I can't guarantee it.
