    Hi from sunny England

    What a brilliant site.....this has to be one of the most positive things about the internet for me bringing so many like minded people from all over the world together to share their tips on plants & gardening.
    CP are new to me but Im well & truly bitten by the CP bug, my collection comprises of 1 pitcher plant @ the moment the venus fly trap plant I bought at the same time died...so although Ive been gardening about 25 years I still have loads to learn.
    My interest in gardening began at a very young age some of the best memories are being with Grandpa who used to enjoy gardening, growing all his own fruit & veg, he also grew tomatoes & geraniums in a massive greenhouse (well it seemed massive at the time)which he then sold to local shops, my Dad would say he was a mean man but to me he was a sort of frugal hero

    What a great story! Thank you for sharing your memories. Welcome to the forum! The world may be in turmoil; but, CPs might just bring peace back to the world one person at a time! lol.

    Ah, but one of the great things of this place is that though we're all connected by our love of CPs, you'll find a good diversity here. Helps keep things interesting.

    Glad to have you here on the forums, Dave, thanks for introducing yourself.

    The English are well known for their passion of gardening. A passion that served them well during WWII. I'm glad you inherited the "gardening gene" from your grandfather. Well come to the forums. There is a sizable UK membership here too.
