    Oxford BG is so recognisable. Other than their flowering Roridula gorgonias, I wasn't too impressed. Oh well eh? I'd also expect them to give that sort of answer considering the "world-famous reputation" the town has.

    Cheers

    Indeed, it is Oxford BG.
    But the annoying thing is how it's all been 'dumbed down' over the past few years. I remember it having a really good CP area (it was a sort of long landscaped bench in the succulent house that got loads of light).
    And don't get me started on what happened to the fern house.......
    Cheers,
    T.

    I was once told that it looked like a toilet for little animals. Considering he is 6 thats a neat idea. My friend thought it was a cup for monkeys and apes which is pretty ironic since a nep nickname is Monkey Cup. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    I like the feeling you get when someone argues with you, but you end up proving them wrong.

    I had a guy, up here in NY, as a tourist town, walk up and down the road looking peculiarly at my greenhouse, I was watching him from my room. Finally he has the gall to go over and start touching my Sarracenia! I run out and ask him quite blatantly what the (insert explicit word here) are you doing!? The guy turns to my and said just admiring your day lilys.

    People are stoooooopid! Least he didn't go into my ghouse and insult my Nepenthes by calling them tomatoes or begonias. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]
