I love gardening and flowers don’t you?,,,,Everything from the old colorful English garden flowers such as the Giant Spencer Sweet Peas in a range of beautiful colors to the many heirloom Red Carnations, plus old world roses and a few tropical plants like, Arums, Lilies and the Begonia’s including the fancy colored Rex leaf hybrid Begonias with all their pretty speckled, bordered leaves with veining and fancy metallic shades.

I am a keen gardener and have a great interest in gardening and flowers and do a lot of research into some early Victorian plants that were grown from the mid 1800s through to about the mid 1950s.

Along the way I naturally found that many of these plants are no longer available, some could be lost forever while others I know are still being grown in my garden and worldwide, which is great.
