Re: Plant ID/Clubs
First let me apologize for all the responses from old posts, I'm catching up
on email....or attempting to do such.
I think you will find this with any hobby or such. You won't find people
with the same interests unless you put yourself into a group where like minded
people congregate. There are millions of email lists, and you'll find
gardeners in all of them, but not until you join a gardening group will you find
someone that has the same level of interest. This is the same with
clubs/societies, etc. When we first moved to Houston, our neighbors had nice gardens,
but none were plant-a-holics like us. It wasn't until meeting folks at
nursery events, joining the Master Gardeners, etc. that we got to know folks that
were into it as much as we were.
I didn't even know many of the groups were out there, and even to this day
learn of events and groups that I wish I had known about years ago......so just
because you don't hear about them doesn't mean they do not exist. Just
like this group, I've learned so much from the plant and gardening societies
and groups I've been a member of, and met the most interesting people.

I don't know about the rest of you, since many of you are in the business
it's likely your friends are gardeners too. You belong to clubs and so
forth. But I don't know anyone in person (excluding y'all) who does what I
do. A few people enjoy their roses, they have a couple tomato plants in the
summer, and that's it. I don't see anything around town that looks like my
yard - there are nice landscapes to be sure but they are things that the
paid-for gardeners can mow & blow. Maybe it's all hidden in back yards...
Anyway I think that as people get older and have more free time they
appreciate the process more.
