My name is David Nicholson and I live and garden in Devon in the extreme south west of England on the southern slopes of Dartmoor. Given that I'm in the south west, and that's where our prevailing weather comes from, and close to both the coast and the moor, it will be no surprise that we get more than our fair share of rain. On average, and very unscientifically measured, around 195 days a year and , when I last found some figures, nearly 900m/m a year.
My interests are mainly bulbous (in it's widest sense) plants, Narcissus; Crocus; Cyclamen; Iris; the odd Snowdrop; and a growing collection of European and South African Romulea. Really I will have a crack at anything bulbous I can get my hands on For summer interest I grow a range of Lewisia. I suffer from the same problem that many of you will share, trying to grow too much of everything.
Although not yet a NARGS member I'm a member of SRGC; the AGS;the Royal Horticultural Society; the Crocus Group; the South African Bulb Group, and shortly will be joining the Cyclamen Society. No wonder I run out of cash for bulbs!
