Hi from Mansfield, Notts

Post by OTG » Mon Apr 05, 2021 9:32 pm

Hello everyone.
I've been a member of the Nottingham branch and regular at the Derby branch for a couple of years. I've an ever expanding collection of mainly other succulents - Gasteria, Aloe, Haworthia, Adromischus and whatever else that I like the look of. A few small Opuntiods have crept in recently.
I mainly grow in the house (and garden once I'm sure we've had our last frost!) Currently on the hunt for a greenhouse to free up some windowsill space.
I've been reading the forum for a while and thought I'd better finally say hello.

Hello Oliver,
I'm nearby in Nottingham. Hope to get along to some of the Nottingham branch meetings once such things are allowed again!
