Re: kent cacti

They gave me their details at the SE cactus Mart:

07767 881981
Woodlands Farm
Shire Lane
Farnborough Kent
BR6 7HH
But said to 'phone first as they aren't always on site.
They had a superb collection of plants for sale at the event - as always.

Re: Confirm ID please?

That would have been my guess as well!

Re: CactusWorld out today

There were two numbers on my adddress label. Not sure what the other one was but it was a four figure number. I nearly wrote that in as a membership number before thinking it was far too low and re checking the label.

Re: Help with Mesem IDs

That looks very different from my plant which has no "keel" and weedy teeth!

Are hybrids a possibility? Unnatural ones presumably given the differing flowering times. Or are the plants quite variable? Mesems are a vast subject and as you can see not one I know much about.

Re: Help with Mesem IDs

Thanks, Suzanne. Yes great help. The flower colour threw me completely. Reassuring that I wasn't too far off with the Carruanthus as well!

Help with Mesem IDs

Can anyone help with IDs for these two? I've had them both for over 20 years but the labels disintegrated long ago. I think one may be Carruanthus (Poss ringens) Carruanthus ringens.JPG and the other could be a Bijlia??? Unknown Mesem1.JPG Unknown Mesem2.JPG But I'm not confident with either guess. ...

Re: Wisley Gardens Petition

Good news, but the cynic in me wonders whether this option was only proposed in order to ensure that the other option went through with minimum opposition!

Re: August 2017 - GotM - Ledebouria

They usually go for my stemless mesems, I put a ring of vaseline round the top of the pots, they don't like crossing it, but your hands get very sticky when you pick the pot up. Haven't had snails attack a Ledebouria before though.
