I live in Charleston South Carolina. I love trading plants and seeds. I am always looking for something new and exciting or challenging to grow. I have a greenhouse that I designed and built myself, it seems to keep getting smaller every year, either that or somebody keeps sneaking plants into it. My yard seems to keep shrinking every year too....I just dont understand! LOL
