My name is Nigel, and I have been on hoo-too (h2g2) since October 2006. I joined soon after I retired from work due to ill health, and I every minute of being on here.
I am a qualified horticulturist and I have always been interested in writing, my ambition of one day being a professional horticultural writer . This site gives me the opportunity to enhance my skill, as well as chatting and making friends .
I live in the Birmingham area of the UK (United Kingdom), and find it fasinating to be able to chat to others all around the world . One of my hobbies is history, which I never used to like at school (Probably because I wasn't paying attention in class ). I enjoy learning about history from all around the world, and I have lots of books - my favourite being 'History of Head Gardeners', which I had for my birthday from a good friend .
Talking about hobbies, my main one is obviously Horticulture which is closely followed by writing and English. I also enjoy history (which I mentioned above), music, reading, photography and wildlife. Oh, and not to forget my computer, which is my life-line to the outer world. .
(Click on the name of the charity for more information)
Ataxia UK - This charity supports people and their families who suffer with Ataxia. It has been a lifeline to myself, my family, and friends, to help understand this rare progressive condition that I suffer from.
Operation Migration - This charity reintroduces endangered Whooping cranes into the wild, in eastern North America. They train the young birds to fly, before taking them to their migration destination. It is so interesting to see how they achieve this goal. There is lots of information on their website to look at .
MS Society - The MS Society has been another life-line to me, as they offer support to sufferers of MS as well as plenty of information to help live as normal a life as possible. As the symptoms of Ataxia are very similar, I find the organisation very useful. Once every three months, I write a short gardening column for my local group. This is then dispatched to all members of the MS Society via a newsletter .
Usually, once a fortnight, I write for (Click on my badge above for 'The Post' page). I write about horticultural issues, which I enjoy sharing my knowledge to help others . It also helps me to keep in-tune with the latest news.

I also write about my allotment, and what is happening in my garden and greenhouse . Please go to: My Allotment Diary/Chat. Will look forward to seeing you there!
I am a Assistant Community Editor (Ace). I enjoy helping people to find their way around the site and offer friendly advice if needed, as well as welcoming newbies . If you would like to find out more about being an Ace, then just click on my shiny orange badge on the right of the page or you can click on the badge above. .
