I'm afraid not everyone would assert that Sarracenia and Dionaea are
hardy in the UK as confidently as Phil. I recommend you test a few
expendable plants first. From my experience, S purpurea seems ok
and I haven't tested Dionaea to the limit yet (which survives in the
New Forest) but the other Sarracenias might be suspect. Some
growers claim the main problems are wind-related rather than

I have had a tiny snippet of U humboldtii in a B tatei for a month
now and it is growing slowly. The bladders particularly are twice
the size of those of my main, terrestrially-grown plant.
