    IMG_3749.jpg My gardening interests are growing exotic, rare or unusual plants and pushing the boundaries as to what I can get away with growing in my central London inner city garden. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone on here.

        Good on you for being a gardener of exotic species. :) Over here most of the fellows think anything exotic, dances. :heehee:

          Welcome to GC, you have a much better climate for growing exotics than I have here in Dorset.:smile:

                        I agree with Nigel. Interesting blog you have. The book that you refer to. Plants of the world. RBG Kew offered it to me @ £79 well worth it but I saved some £30 buying it from Amazon. Certainly a publication for my bookshelf.

                          BB. I see Aljos Farjon has at last got his new book. Ancient Oaks on the market. I'm looking forward to reading it.
