Re: Which fertilisers?

The culprit here I think is ammonia emissions, so I am guessing the government needs mainly to reduce the use of urea-based fertilisers on farms.

(edit)
Sorry Tony, we've overlapped.

Re: Feeling full yet?

Maybe one of these days I'll get a cactus to grow straight.....

Re: PlanetoHuerto

There is a distinction here between warnings about SSL registration - and clearly in this particular instance the Spanish site and eg French site DO have valid SSL certificates. Try going directly to one of those and you will get no warning. The warning - and it is a SSL standard warning, not a warn...

Re: Pyyrhocactus umadeave seedlings

FWIW I had germination in 2017 from seed bought from Koehres (portion of 10). By winter I had two seedlings remaining. How many originally germinated in total I don't know. But I lost them by the start of this spring.....

Re: Where to get pots?

Thanks Jim, that saved me doing that! It also is fine on my mobile, clicking one of the catalogues brings up the front page, top left there's the usual three-line menu symbol, and clicking that shows a pdf download choice. Mind you, I haven't found those pots yet in the catalogues! I suspect I would...

Re: Venlo greenhouse

That's only one company, Dave? Isn't the point that Venlo describes a type of greenhouse, not a trade name. Maybe I am wrong but that's the way I always understood it.

I am puzzled by your link. This may now be a US company? Do the greenhouses, even imported through nl, all come from China?

Re: Fungus on seedlings etc.

FWIW I tried cinnamon this year to control fungus growth and have found it ineffective, with fungus (as opposed to algae) just growing through the sprinklings. I also found it didn't help control problems with brown fungal rot on cut surfaces of myrtillocactus grafts. So my conclusion so far is that...
