Friends and Favourites

The Internet has created a wonderful opportunity for those interested in all  aspects of rock gardening to share, knowledge and experience; plants and seeds; and pictures of the plants they find of interest.

Through the Internet I have made lots of friends from many different parts of the world, most of whom I have never met personally, and many where distance makes it highly unlikely that I ever will. Rarely a week goes by without a little parcel or envelope coming through my letter box with all kinds of 'goodies', and rarely does a week go by without me mailing something to friends in return.

I would like to use this page to invite some of those friends to to introduce themselves and also to show some pictures of their favourite plants.
