Sow them now Cactusgirl assuming you have a warm spot or better a heated propagator. Fingers crossed you'll have seedlings ready to take full advantage of the growing season.

Harvested some seedpods just this morning - and I surely can't sow everything so will have donations to make to the pool but just need some time to clean and organise. Hopefully will do so within the month and I need to be sure I have Chris' new address.

Happy to give back to the pool from which so many of the plants in my collection have originated.

I shall look forward to these, Jan. I'm away for a couple of weeks from today, but when I'm back my new greenhouse goes up, and I hope to harvest seed also, as I unpack my plants from their carry trays in the garage.

Hi Bob,

No, Mark hasn't been trading for several years now, and I don't think he will be, at least not for a while. There were cut-backs at the Gardens where he used to house his plants and seedlings, which made it impossible for him to continue, sadly.

Hi Chris

I was wondering if I could have some of the Graptopetalum Tacitus Bellus seed that JaneO sent to you recently?

I'm not familiar with the way the forum seed pool works.

Profuse apologies!

I have just read the first post with all the necessary information.

I will now do things properly. Sorry, Chris

Hi
I have many Euphorbia obesa seeds, many of which are fine form/tartan.
I was given seeds back in 2010 of which these are third generation!
Free to anyone.
