About me

I'm 23, I'm Droylsden in Manchester and work at a garden centre.

I'm more into the unusual plants and I love propagating seeds whatever they are! I'd love to have room for a large collection of Orchids but think I'll have to stick with my 4 in the bathroom.

My favourite plant at the moment is Nomocharis. I'd really love to have one of these plants but I can't find them anywhere for a reasonable price, I guess I'll have to save up! I'm also a big fan of Arums and Imperial Fritillarias.

Flower photography is a favourite hobby of mine so thank you to everyone that has commented on my photos :-)
