Hi Richard,

A great place for a stroll - and not just a quick one! Especially love all those big foliage Vrieseas. Thanks for the pics.

Cheers, Paul

Hi Richard - Love your shade house and the attractive and healthy looking plants. It would certainly be a great place to unwind and get back to nature.

I see you use polystyrene boxes to house your plants in. I use cut down boxes to keep small seedlings tidy, and I've seen full size boxes turned upside down and used as benches also. Would you mind sharing with us the advantage of using the boxes in the way you do for your plants.

Thanks for sharing you pic's,all the best, Nev.

Hi Paul & Nev thanks for the compliments.
I am very passionate and proud of my broms.

In answer to your question Nev, the poly boxes are turned upside down and used as benching, cheap and convenient.
I find this helps with air movement and it also helps insulate a little bit ( we get down to -6 sometimes here)
and lastly I dont have bend down so far.

Cheers Richard

Your welcome to visit.( I,m out in the sticks)
but happy to meet other brom lovers

Looking good, Richard :). You deserve to be proud. Your shade house makes Aladdin's cave look a bit on the dull side.
