T geometricus

The tread about next years national reminded me that I never found out who owned the splendid T geometricus which was in the last national? Any ideas?

There was an impressive one at Hyde Hall Zone Show whilst I was judging last Saturday, not sure if any photos were taken.

With that species you do not need a label Mike, I would like to know how the owner stops the segments falling off when it gets to that size

Another couple of inches lower thou and I would have captured the owners name. I would like to ask them the same question and whether it’s grafted.
