It is really worth a look, even if it is filled with spiky things.

You've met Mrs T then, Liz?

But she doesn't go into the greenhouse!

Thanks for a great afternoon yesterday Peter! As good as the photo's look on here it really doesn't do your collection justice! Its that good!! :grin: There were lots of plants I'd never seen in the flesh before and to see some species which I have at home in a 9cm pot majestically posing on your bench in a 30cm bowl was amazing :grin: Jo and Mrs T seemed to have a good old chin wag and it was nice we had the weather to sit outside in your lovely garden. Anytime your a little further north we'd love to repay the hospitality if you'd like to pop in anytime you'd be most welcome :wink:

Anyway - to anyone who hasn't paid Peter a visit yet...get it sorted out!!

On Monday last my wife and I paid our third visit to Peter/Tina's home where once again we were made very welcome. The plants I purchased were of excellent quality. If you are looking for rare and quality plants this is a must visit and see for your selves you won't be disappointed.

Thank you Peter for a most enjoyable and informative morning. The cup of tea supplied by your wife, Mrs T, only enhanced the pleasure of sitting in your lovely garden. Your collection is exceptional and I did enjoy seeing all the different varieties.
Once again thank Peter and if anyone has the time I can highly recommend a visit.

After a massive clearout - sold, donated, scrapped - of my overfull greenhouse, my greenhouse is now......still overfull. However, nearly all the plants have been repotted/potted on. interesting to see the growth since my original posting on this thread. If you look closely, you may spot some Copiapoas trying to hide.

A superb collection Peter, and all in marvellous condition. As you say, they have grown well since your original post. Thanks for the update.

I'm glad that your ruthlessness has been a success! The plants on the left of the gh in particular look like they're rewarding your extra care.

I am in awe :eek: :eek:

Is the taller plant on the right of the second photo down a saguaro?

It's a common Pachycereus pringlei. I do have a saguaro (Carnegia gigantea) but the rate of growth is so slow that I wouldn't recommend that anybody should give one room in the greenhouse.
