About Me

Bromeliads and allied species have always had a special attraction. Here in Madeira the climate is very well suited to practically all species of Bromeliads and Tillandsias- I've grown Brom's in my garden for 30 years now, slowly I really began to take note and realize the perfect beauty of these flambouyant plants, their extreme variety in flower forms and colors their generosity and the fun involved in caring for, grooming and observing them also their versatility for display on host trees. Bromeliads are much tougher and productive than most people imagine, and like the Tillandsia group adapt readily to their environment. I still draw a deep breath when I see several in full bloom as a group!  and can see how others before me became so enthralled and made them a life study and passion.
