Re: Spalding Cactus Mart - Sat 27th April

You'd better get Spalding Branch to update their details on the events page Tony - it is wrong there! Just different ends of the same road anyway.

Re: New method for controlling Mealy Bugs....?

How did you stop the whole plant being attracted by the magnet - surely there would be a lot of iron it in - and the whole plant pop out of the pot!?!?

Re: New Chairman

Thanks for taking on the role so willingly and enthusiastically, Ian. Whilst all our officers are superb people who work so hard for us all, no doubt trying to navigate new ideas through them will at times feel more challenging than repotting a specialist collection of Opuntia tunicata! We all must ...

Re: We have got Asphodelaceae back

What makes you think saying Asphodelaceae easily trips off the tongues of us other mere mortals Terry?!

Re: Puzzle Plant at Alpine Show

Thanks for all your replies, and your identification, Stuart. Is it that the actual flower hasn't appeared as yet on this plant from the red whatever they are - we thought they were the whole flower. Bit of a beauty and the beast plant!

Puzzle Plant at Alpine Show

Those of us who venture to such alien events are often intrigued as to what plants from the Cactus and Succulent World are found in their shows which we would regard as far from an Alpine.

Re: Wisley threatened
