Re: BCSS Forum Seed Pool

Hi Chris, as the last post was over a year ago I am sure there must be other new members who like me were unaware of the seed pool.

Re: Fockea edulis

Without meaning to hijack the thread, my Fockea (assumed edulis as it has long lost it's lable) appeared dead when I moved the first batch of plants in early October so was left out side for a fortnight. On my second visit it had started to produce a few green sprouts from the caudex so was rescued ...

Re: Pseudolithos migiurtinus flowering time lapse

Re: Keith H's Greenhouse on tour.

Rod, I know it will be a bit tight as they were in a 16ft x 6ft 6, so far they are in the space of a 8ft x 6ft so I have still got the equivalent of 8ft x 4ft to play with.

Re: Keith H's Greenhouse on tour.

Thank you Rod and Martin I hope your move goes well. I am back in London with a van packed with plants, I must take some photos in the morning before unpacking. Due to the last couple of years of almost total neglect some of them were dead, some of them will need a lot of TLC, and others look much h...
