.... and then coming to an end on Saturday evening, they seemed to be the first to offer discounts as of course all the plants would have to be re-potted when they got home.

The sales areas didn't look very busy, like photos of cactus marts in the UK shown on the Forum taken at quieter times in the day. Was the ELK attendance down on the usual numbers. Usually there's no spaces left in the car park for most of the weekend. Did anyone from the UK go, although all the UK rooms were cancelled some people usually stay nearby.
The only thing that stopped me going was having to quarantine in Holland afterwards.

The worst thing about ELK is that it's too late in the year.

I've already lost a couple of plants trying to get them repotted, bug free and established before the cold sets in.
Sprayed three days after repotting with SB. In a soggy mush now a week later when I was considering another spray.
