Welcome to Inspiring Plants

Hi and welcome to my hobbyist site devoted to the plants I love, Cyclamen, Pleiones, other bulbs, dwarf conifers and “alpines”. The site started in 1999, was rebuilt in 2017 and now in 2020 it has to be started all over again. I've decided to review the old text and added in a fair amount of new material. I also have some new photos to add along with the old ones so all in all it may take a little while to get everything back up and running. If you are one of the regulars or a new visitor I hope you will come back again soon! Mark


Rebuild Progress

Some more about Inspiring Plants

  

I've been growing plants since my early teens, nearly (gulp) 50 years ago. I've always tend to grow under glass, greenhouses, frames or protected troughs. I've lived all my life in the UK and live currently just outside of Oxford. For those in the US I think that is hardiness zone 7 or 8. I'll probably put some more info about my history under miscellaneous. After running the site for 20+ years there are two things that people ask about, firstly "do you sell plants? the answer is "no", and "why do all the images have a watermark on them?". The answer to that is that over the years multiple seed companies and nurserymen have used my pictures on their sites for promotion without permission. I tend to pursue anyone to do that on the basis if they need to steal an image then they probably don't actually have the plant and intend to dupe buyers into thinking they are going to get the genuine plant. But enough of that, please enjoy the pages as they appear. Mark, January 2020.
