Re: CactusWorld Live booking is open!

All morning tickets for both days now sold, tickets still available for time slots after midday but don't leave it much longer or the only tickets will be for late afternoon and won't allow very long to look round. The only way still to visit in the morning might be with a combined bus and garden ti...

Re: Some Stapeliads today

It's got quite a sweet smell, I'd suggest marzipan. It's as far removed as possible from Brachystelma Barbarae which I once put on the public counter for a few hours when I worked for the DHSS in the distant past when I had a proper job.

Re: Lithops dorothea C124

Lithops is the genus that I'm hopeless at identifying, Dorothea was one of the easier ones with the red bits but if all these are Dorothea then I'm back to square one. When I look at Lithops I see one species with different coloured leaves. The problem with such a well-grown batch of seedlings is wo...

Re: Copiapoa krainziana

I've two soft spined ones, the larger one in the foreground has flowered well over the summer. It was originally a seedling from Ken Burke. The Copiapoa in the left-hand corner was another of Ken's seedlings and flowers prolifically. It's a hybrid from Ken's seed when he had a single Krainziana in f...

Re: Misidentified Mammillaria

Looks like a Parodia, one of the hook-spined ones so something like P.Mutabilis is a reasonable name.

Just to duplicate what I've already written on the 'News & Events' section. Tickets are selling very quickly and will sell out well in advance for the Cactus World weekend. There's currently only about 80 left for the Saturday morning and most of the earlier weekends are already sold out. If you pla...

This place is new and very popular and the Cactus World weekend will sell out well in advance, particularly as it's a bank holiday weekend. It'l...

Re: Hyde Hall Gardens Essex Zone Display and Plant Sale - July 24th & 25th

Tickets seem to go very quickly when it comes to the last few days. There's only 10 tickets left for this Sunday morning out of about 700. If tickets sell as well for next Sunday the morning time slots will sell out so I'd advise booking tickets now while there are still plenty available. Turning up...

My first thought was Echinocactus Ingens, anyone else got any other suggestions.
