Line your container with plastic, such as an old compost bag. We've used an old sink, but any watertight container, at least 20cm deep, would be suitable.
Fill the container with peat or Moorland Gold, and add handfuls of perlite and lime-free sand. Mix it all up and loosely firm it into the container.
Knock the plants from their pots and tease out the roots to encourage them to spread out. Make a hole and put each plant in position. Add a selection of plants of different heights, then water thoroughly with rainwater.
Backfill around each plant with compost, making sure each plant is snug, then lightly firm in place.
Regularly cut dried traps back to the base with scissors. Cut all faded blooms off after flowering, leaving the stalk to die down naturally. Once the stalk has turned brown, cut it off at the base.
