Hi From South west France!
« on: September 23, 2020, 08:28:28 pm »

Hi,
I live in south west France, just a bit North of Toulouse.
I am a researcher in Agronomy and plants.
I also love botany and I breed many plants at home (Love drilling seeds);
I breed Mandrakes for more than 10 year and I will open a nursery online in the next months.
I am member of several botanical associations, Including at Conservatoire des Collections Végétales Spécialisées
(I love bird watching too!!!)
Best regards to all of you!
Yves

To finish my presentation:
I also love cacti. I had a collection of 700 small species under a glasshouse but I sold most of all when we sell our former house 15 years ago
I still keep few: Ie Lophophora williamsii and echinocereus "Fitchii"

Bonjour!
World is small!
I expect to open an online nursery for Mandrakes and Atropa beladonna in future (and also equipment for breeders,  like GA3 gibberellic acid to increase germination rate, large plant pot containers for mandrakes in order to allow good development of roots).
