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

Did I read somewhere that they had been bred in Russia?

Re: Puzzle Plant at Alpine Show

Thanks for your further comments. Seems like a good plant for the succulent identification class at a judges course either out of or even in flower- if they held one at this time of year!

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: John Innes composts

If you have a B&M locally which has what they optimistically call a garden centre they have Westlands JI at a much better price than the "Everyday low price" claimed by the new Homebase owners - from memory less than £3.50 for a 30 litre bag.

Re: Field Number Database - The Future

My web site is hosted by a third party and the cost is to my mind surprisingly modest. Having had two major problems with Fasthosts I moved to Webwiz two years ago and very pleased I did so. But they are Microsoft based and I expect you use open source so would need another provider. i use an Access...
