Im Margie from Amersham, Bucks

My background is from a family of botanists and my interest ws piqued many years ago by my uncle Charles Scott of East London, South Africa, who was a Haworthia specialist. Ive a very small collection of many different types of cacti and succulents (limited space, unfortunately), and I get great pleasure looking after my prickly babies. I have given many away cuttings and offsets to unsuspecting family and friends.

Welcome to the Forum Margie and interesting to hear about your uncle, I assume the same person who wrote the Haworthia book? No wonder you became interested! Enjoy your plants.
