Re: ID please

Thanks to you both. Only mystery now is when and where did I get it?!

ID please

Discovered this hiding behind a large Echinocactus a few weeks ago. No idea where it came from. I know I should know what it is but I’ll plead anno domine. Ehinocereus?
Thanks in advance.

Not sure Brodie (or my wife come to that) would agree...

Re: Conophytums awaking

Thanks Terry. I’ll do as you say. I’m in Norfolk, so mean temperature higher than Leeds in the frozen north!

Re: Conophytums awaking

Thanks both. I suppose with spring generally starting earlier in the garden than say a decade ago, it wouldn’t be surprising if the Conos reacted by being a bit earlier as well?

Conophytums awaking

Several of my mature Conos are showing signs of wanting to grow again with new heads poking through the old shrivelled ones. This seems to be at least 3 weeks early. Anyone else got the same? Presumably if they want to go now then watering must be resumed?

Re: BEF Pots are back

The BEF round terracotta pots look as if they might be the shallow type rather than normal depth for the width? Can you confirm depth for 3.5 inch please, they look ideal for Conos. Thanks
