I'm a cross between a mad biologist and a home gardener. At age 6 or 7 I could name pretty much any plant I could see and I have always had something for plants since then. I went on to do a bachelor's degree in plant biology followed by a master's degree specializing in classification of plants based on their genetic make-up and their geographic distribution; what I had really wanted to do was to work in commercial propagation. Life dealt me a completely different fate and after having worked for a few summers in a couple nurseries, I was forced to put aside my interests. Now that I have bought a house in Quebec City with some decent land, I have finally been able to resume planting anything I want to ! I have a thing for roses and cacti in particular (for the flowers, not the spines - in both cases) but I will try anything that's showy or unusual. Et oui, je suis francophone !

I live in: Canada

My zone is: z4 Qbc City

My favorite forum 1 is Roses.

My favorite forum 2 is Cacti & Succulents.
