Hey, I've acted age-appropriate today.

That is, if you consider lazing around drinking Cherry Coke, playing video games and putting a Tomb Raider poster on my wall appropriate for a 44 year old?

I,m 67 and i still enjoy growing exotics,gardening dosen,t stop just because you are getting older.
I planted my palms when i was about 30 and look what i got now?.
Lots of lovely plants and a aching back but its worth it.

It doesn't matter what age you are, thank yourself VERY lucky you found the bug early. I WISH I had been more interested when I had been 17 and I would have tried to make a career in it. A tad to late for me now as I'm in my 30's with a young family and can't afford to re-train.
Most wanted list - Any Young Trachycarpus and/or fern.

Pete's been a member here since the beginning (almost) and he's 18 now (I think), he was a prolific poster but less so nowadays(in fact, I was a bit surprised to see he's not been in since January :( ). http://www.hardytropicals.co.uk/forum/m ... ofile&u=62 The girls still chat with him on the facetube though and he's still gardening the same way :DD .
