Re: British weather

Yes, you can't accuse the British weather of being predictable. Scorch is a real risk after the long dull winter weather.

Re: Echinocereus that thinks its a Mammillaria

Prolific indeed, and doesn't look much like an Echinocereus in form. It'll be nice to see the flowers when they appear.

That is a remarkable display, given the plant's history. It shows how resilient our plants can be.
