Hi everyone.

John - That's certainly a comprehensive array of clay pots you've posted here. Are they all in Hawi Winter's garden or your own?

I've seen Hawi Winter on Face Book quite a bit but don't know much about him, is he also a NZ hybridiser and what is his role in the NZ Brom Society. I ask this because reading some of his posts, he seems very knowledgeable about brom's and I get the feeling there's more to him than just a "potter" (albeit a very good one).

All the best, Nev.

Hi Nev, Yes there all his in his own 10 hectare garden. They immigrated to New Zealand and brought the property when it was only grass, its now a treed wonderland! with many grown from seed, taken over 30 years to get to this point. We spent a day there, checking out all his pots as we commissioned him to make us a few and had to pick what we wanted. He does pottery as a hobby and has combined that with his love of plants which includes bromelaids. They have at least 1 hectare devoted to broms but much of this is now in shade as they have plant to many trees. He trained as a bio chemist but now teaches biology at secondary school here and yes he knows a lot about plants in general, ask him a question and you get a full in comprehensible spiel on the subject which he then has to convert into laymans terms. I don't think he has done any hybridizing.

John.
