Hello from Belgium

Post by Astra » Wed Jan 18, 2017 8:20 pm

Hello everybody.
My name is Martine and I live in Belgium.
My hobby is just like yours , cactus and succulents.
I have a greenhouse with around 250 plants, most are cactus.
Every year they give me wonderful flowers.
Thank you for accepting me in your midst.

Welcome to the forum, Martine. Not too long to wait now for a new crop of flowers.

Welcome Martine, it sounds as though you have a good collection and you will find plenty to interest you here. Maybe in the Spring you could post some photos of your plants for us to enjoy.

Thank you very much for your kind words.
I can't wait until the plants start growing again. I hope they will give as many flowers as previous years.
I will be very happy to post photo's of my flowering plants in the spring.
Attached are some pictures of my collection taken in 2016.
Best regards,
Martine

Thanks for posting these Martine, you have a good collection of healthy plants there. I am also longing for Spring to arrive as it is very cold in the South East of England at present.
