Hello from Brisbane Queensland.
I never thought 3 years ago that I'd ever take up gardening. I find gardening a great new thing to do in my spare time since money became tight.

I am a tradesman which means my job takes me to many peoples houses around town. Some of which have interesting gardens. This is how my plant collecting started. In February 2011, someone offered me a full size aloe vera plant, I became particularly interested in aloes, mainly because I liked their low maintenance, flowers and overall plant structure.
Since then, I have collected about 56 varieties of aloes, gasterias and haworthias.

Another undertaking which I have recently started is setting up self watering garden beds made from old bath tubs. So many tomatoes! My wife is very happy with them.

If anyone has questions about my garden, feel free to comment.
