    Hi Matt. Welcome to the forum. I'm relatively new to the forum myself and it's proven to be very informative. Everyone readily offers advice about culture and the photo sections are a great place to learn about different and new plants. What plants are you growing so far? I hope this forum is as useful and valuable to you as it is to myself. Happy growing.

    Welcome. There are a few Aussies on the forum. I'm sure you will bump into each other here eventually.
    Although I am a Yank I spent 4 yrs in Cronulla (southern burb of Sydney) when I was 12-16 yrs old. I went to Caringbah High School. My Dad worked for an oil company and we traveled a bit. I love Australia and considered myself to be an Aussie for many years after we returned to the USA. Where in Sydney are you?

    Hi Matt,

    I'm from SE Qld. I haven't posted here lately as I ended up losing a large number of my plants as a result of our extended drought, so don't have much to contribute at the moment. I'm hoping to start rebuilding my collection once winter is over, probably just starting with a few natives and other toughies.

    There is a wealth of experience and knowledge on this forum, some of the best photography you will see and some funny characters as well :)

    Thanks Karen. I've still been peeking in occasionally :)
    Right now I'm fighting the strong urge to shop for new plants. MUST resist until after winter so I can get set up again for them.
