Re: Supplier of large bowls?

If I remember correctly the very large Italian Bowls were limited in quantity. Probably best to contact Peter. He will know if there are any left. As it says on the website order form - we are taking orders for these larger pots, but they will be posted out by someone from another branch.... As stuf...

The packaging of the one I use (and I assume others) is the same as the bag on the right.

Re: transplanting young cacti - moist media or dry

I always transplant my seedlings when dry. It is easier that way - no horrible soggy compost to try and split up and the roots can be teased into their new home with minimal risk of damage.

Re: Gymno.stellatum. (lost label)

Certainly in the group of Gymnocalyciums that contain stellatum (Trichomosemineum). I always remember it to have more spines though - well mine seem to.

Re: BEF Pots are back

Many thanks to Manchester Branch, and especially to Peter and Chris for this really excellent service. I received a welcome delivery of bowls today and I really appreciate the work that has gone into organising this. Now I can get on with the repotting! Thank you for the feedback. (tu) (tu) :grin:

If your flower doesn't appear like that there are lots of flower pictures on my gymnocalycium page: https://cactuscorner.co.uk/gymnocalycium-2/

Re: Updated seed lists

I had planned on ordering from them this spring but I think I'll wait until next year. I'm sure the list will be updated further over the next few months, and perhaps the website will be further developed too. It leaves a little bit to be desired in user friendliness. https://mesagarden.com/product...
