Hello HTUK Forum. My name is Nick and I reside in Chalford, Gloucestershire. There's a lot of experience and a wealth of knowledge on this forum, so not easy for beginners to fit in, but we all share one passion at least. I purchased a small Phoenix palm a few years back, potted it up and then googled plants that's would look good along side it....that's how all this mess started. Biggest achievement for me so far was getting my echiums to flower, was an awesome experience and never seen so many bees either. Possible house move at the end of the year so Ive got one eye on what I'll have to take with me, but as most of you are aware, resisting temptation to buy a plant, seed or bulb is difficult. So going to turn my focus to some annuals this year, any pointers on something a bit different would be most welcome. Thanks for reading, looking forward to the spring.
