Where the decking has base/GH fixed, it will tend to remain wet for prolonged periods after rain/snow, and will rot much faster than if having free airflow around it. Much be...

Re: Winter losses or damage

Re: ID help...

Re: December 2017 - Rebutias

Happy New Year, everyone. Plenty of flowers in lots of colours to finish the year. I liked the way Chris L captured the petal texture in several of his photos. Dave’s pig - sorry Aylostera rosalbiflora - came into the reckoning, and I did like Sylvia’s Vanilla Ice. However Rod’s Rebutia heliosa, wit...
