Re: 1 in 7

Haven't heard that name for a while Stuart does he still do cacti ?
I did swap a number of cuttings with him and he flowered one and I still haven't had any flowers on my plant (an Abbey brook plant)

Places to visit near Heathrow

Re: Lithops lesliei F123C

All Cole numbers start with a C so don't think this is one of his numbers as C123 is Lithops villetii ssp. kennedyi

Re: is this cannibalism

Tina if I remember right your good friend Colin once was after some Agave nectre syrup
Not 100% sure but I think it was for his daughter you could ask him about it
Or look here https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agave_nectar

Re: Simple act which could boost membership

Did this years ago when I was Leeds secretary and then the zone started giving branches an advertising budget not much but just printing up a little bit with branch and national details and basic plant watering etc and putting in with plants when people bought them Don't know if the zone still does it
