I've long been a plant nut, but after the discovery of GW, have been afflicted with various plant related diseases. Having been bitten hard by the Clematis bug, the Rose bug and the Perennial bug, am branching out into shrubs and trees too.

I consider myself a novice gardner, since I've been doing this "seriously" for only the past 3 or 4 years. I currently have about 5 acres to play with, but am restricting myself to the acre of cleared area around the house. The rest is all trees, mixed in with various invasives, thugs and other nasties that I battle on a fairly routine basis. Thankfully, I have remained immune to Poison Oak and Poison Ivy, and am making slow progress in my attempts to destroy them.

As of last year, I had only 5 roses - Eden, Golden Celebration, Heritage, Graham Thomas and Tamora (5). For some inexplicable reason, that list seems to be growing at a pretty good clip.
