Neem spray query

Can Neem emulsion be used through a spray? Assuming the emulsion is made up with Neem, washing up liquid (detergent) and water, does it clog up the mesh filter in the spray or not?

Anyone tried this?

They can grow at different times for the same grower when they're in pots next to each other; there can be weeks difference in growth starting, even when conditions are identical. Very individual plants.

Re: June 2018 – My most beautiful flower

Very hard to pick one out as 'most beautiful'. Eriosyce I love for the way many have flowers that seem to glow

Agaves? In which case there are a few that are potentially hardy, depending on where in the UK they are to be grown.
