Re: Tesco,s finest

I tried some of the Tesco stuff years ago whilst my daughters were much younger. They saw the bags in the porch and were all excited because they thought we were getting a cat!

Re: Autumn South East Cactus Mart Sunday 14th October 2018

Only a few days to go, last chance this year to see all the top nurseries all in one hall. In addition there's the auction, well worth a visit.

Re: Different colour Lithops

It's quite likely that there will be one of these at the Cactus Mart at Edenbridge this Sunday - not amongst my sales plants though but I saw one recently that will probably be there.

Re: BCSS Birmingham - Autumn Show pics

Wow, that's quick, photos on here before I've even got home from the show. The Ariocarpus in the first photo was odd, I only saw it after the show but it looks like Trigonus but with pink flowers. Maybe a hybrid? Good public attendance, many had come specially for the show, plenty of plants sold and...

Re: Unnamed Displays of Cactus

They all look Dutch, nothing wrong with that but mixed trays of Dutch plants are rarely named. They are usually well grown but can deteriorate rapidly in poor light in a garden centre. There can often be a few similar plants in one pot to bump up the size to something a garden centre likes to sell. ...

Re: Turbinicarpus dickinsoniae - or not????

Dickisoniae looks right at this size, with the thin curled centrals, there's no 'N' , named for Shirley Dickison if my memory is correct. There are a lot of Turbinicarpus names though, and not many different plants.

Re: Birmingham Branch Autumn Show

Only a week to go - great venue for a day out - plus four nurseries with a wide range of sales plants. In addition to the normal show, there's also the extra Haworthia classes, one of the last big events of the year.

Ariocarpus Scapharostris - time to repot

This Ariocarpus Scaphoristris was originally a tiny seed-grown plant from Ken Burke many years ago. After all those years it finally has one small offset and it flowers every year. He sold almost all his plants in 2in BEF pots and grew about 80% of the plants he sold. BEF pots were the strongest pot...

Re: B.E.F. Pots ?

I'd guess that this is where Philip Barker had his pots made, the location seems to be in the right area, quantities shouldn't be a problem for nurseries or BCSS branches, I've just bought 5000 6.5cm round pots and only use square pots to help with grafting. The problem with producing BEF pots comme...
