My name is Ross and I am an Armourer with the New Zealand Police specializing in forensic firearm work.My spare time is spent fishing , diving and gardening. Mostly I grow and hyberidise Tuberous begonia's and potter with New Guinea impatiens.
I enjoy all forms of gardening growing most plant's from seed or cuttings. Under lights on heat pad's I have close to 700 small begonia's preparing for the summer. Each year we have 2 - 300 hanging baskets on show with regular visits from old folks homes and the terminally ill.
I thought this forum would be a good way to swap seed's and growing idea's with a huge range of similarly interested people. Some seed which is readily obtainable here may not be so common in the States or other countries and vice versa. Would especially like to find unusual New Guinea impatien seed. One called TANGO in particular.I also dabble in Hydroponics.

I live in: United States

My zone is: New Zealand

My favorite forum 1 is Growing under Lights.

My favorite forum 2 is Seed Exchange.
