There have been a few references to me being admin on another forum recently Well although I don't visit much I'm still admin there in honour of my contribution for several years
the forum deals with the growing of cacti and I thought you might like to see my collection as shown on youtube in 2011 I still have about 700 plants in my conservatory and 2 small greenhouses in the garden



some flowers you might like to see

some closeup shots I did with my digital camera

and a few more here

the youtube vid has nearly 17000 hits now which is good to see in only 2 1\2 years

probably not of much interest to most but shows a bit of my background

BTW the dark green one in the vid has now outgrown the greenhouse, I had to cut a hole in the roof this spring to let it out

So that's what Steamerpoint meant when he said you were a 'prickly customer', Neville.

We inherited a bowlful of finger-like little cacti 10 years ago, which now and again suddenly spring into bright orange flower - wonderful. The trouble is the bowl keeps producing 'babies' who are determined to leap out of the bowl to set up home elsewhere. When they are retrieved from the floor and sat in another pot they go mad in there. Consequently we have several other plants with 'babies', or are they 'cuckoo cacti', growing where they weren't intended. In general plants either like us or hate us. The same in the garden, where we are overrun with yuccas, evening primroses and something we called 'paint plant' (aluminium plant?).
