Re: CactusWorld (not quite) Live 2020 Show

I do despair at some of these seemingly negative comments. The aims of this ‘competition’ were threefold. 1) to have a bit of fun. 2) to have folks spend time with their plants and communicate and share some of their best plants with others during a time of lack of social contact (lockdown/no branc...

Re: CactusWorld (not quite) Live 2020 Show

I will confess there was a point when I thought we were barking up the wrong tree.

Re: Your favouite National 2020 entry

Try this, one of my plants is missing from class 1, unless its NAS & they were too polite to list it with a big cross :lol: One of mine missing from Class 1 too.

Re: BCSS Virtual National Show

I am very sorry, it has taken every free hour I have had since the closing date, to organise entries from over 100 people who sent over 350 emails and 720 entries in just about every conceivable format of entry, image size etc, some made no relationship between the class entered and the photos, soem...
