General view, showing the main collection house complete with steer's skull! The green canopy to the right houses one of the biggest money plants I've ever seen, the plant which started it all for Doug & Doreen back in the 80's. Hothouse at the rear, plus other greenhouses including a large sales house. Some very nice Koi carp in the pond too!

Thanks for another great tour, Vic.

Our branch visited Doug & Doreen in 2006 (just before I joined the forum) And I'd recommend a visit to anyone that gets the chance. Doug's own plants are a treat to see, and you don't need to take a packed lunch!

Cheers.
