I have had a passion for growing plants most of my life. My first obsession was with orchids and bromeliads, but I found that I needed a glasshouse to grow the more 'unusual ones' that I wanted to grow. In 1996 I discovered the facinating world of bulbs, and I've been hooked ever since!

My main interests are in the Iridaceae and Liliaceae (particularly the Hyacinthaceae) families, but I'm keen on all geophytes, and I'm usually tempted to give anything a try! South African and South American genera hold the most interest, but I'm also very keen on many other's. Some genera I grow include: Albuca, Alophia, Arisaema, Aristea, Babiana, Calochortus, Cypella, Erythronium, Eucomis, Ferraria, Fritillaria, Gladiolus, Habranthus, Iris, Lachenalia, Massonia, Moraea, Oxalis, Romulea, Tigridia, Trillium, Veltheimia, Watsonia and Zephyranthes.

I have a mail order list of bulbs and seed, Border Gateway Bulbs.
