So having recently registered this blog on Blotanical, I thought a little welcome was in order to any blotanists who may venture over. So, Welcome! You may be scanning down the rest of the posts and wondering what a blog that features things like shark anatomy, seal birthing, bathroom frogs and pirouetting flamingos is doing on a garden blog aggregation site?
Well plants, and often garden plants, tend to make up rather the bulk of the Earth section of Earth, Wind & Water. In particular I have rather a penchant for the ancient plants; there's an compedium of posts here about my beloved Cycads and you'll see a few ancient tree posts dotted through the archives.
I'm also a fan of growing plants for their culinary potential - both unusual fruiting trees and more common vegetables. My little vegetable garden here on island is growing well so more posts on that soon. Also look out for forthcoming posts on how to grow terrestrial orchids, the most beautiful tree in the world and perhaps an update on my old garden's breeding barn owls.
