Outstanding and well done. Love your web site, love the dream ............. if only I was closer. I have posted a link to your web site on the BCSS forum

http://www.bcss.org.uk/forum/read.php?1,117083

You might have a few Brits looking at what you do. Wish I was down the road to help I really do. Even makes me think about buying a plane ticket and coming over for a week or so to help.

Once again I take my hat off to you chaps and lassies, you're doing a superb job.

Ewen p.s. the photo was taken in Malaysia in 2004. You may see it on other postings but I don't have access to my archive photos the noo and I'm so excited I had to post a wee pic.

Hi Ewen!
I was reading another one of your post and saw you were offering Agave seeds. I'm not to proud to beg. Sooo, I'm wondering if we could work a deal out. Email me and we'll workout the details. I also read you wish you could come over and work with us. Let me know if your coming so we can get together and maybe go to a few nurseries and gardens. If you like succulents there are lots of places to see and buy them. I would also have no problem setting up a guerrilla gardening dig so you can get your hands dirty.

PS I'm glad you like the web site. I try to keep it up but with a full time job and the gardening there's little time left to work on the web site.

Just thought I'd let you see some of my plants. Problem with growing cacti in Scotland is you need a greenhouse. You don't get that free root run that allows the plants to bulk up. Loved the video Scott where you were explaining how to keep succulents small. I do that all the time as space is a premium here and it's a great way of allowing plants to tick over so to speak.

Pseudolobivia's are superb. Are you able to plant out Lobivia Ferox Scott? Huge plants with big flowers  Smiley

Here's a group of Lobiva's and Psuedolobivia's I love these kinds of cacti. Echinocactus grusonii are easy to grow from seed too. You need any of them? Take your time with a reply, I know you're busy :-)

And now some of my plants in the greenhouse. The 2 photos above were taken with a red Fiat X1/9 behind, another one of my passions :-) The plants in this photo were a mix of my own seedlings and small plants purchased at shows etc.

Mammillaria goldii which is almost as amazing as Mammillaria theresae. Probably a bit small for planting out in your large gardens but still lovely to look at

I'm a member of the British Cactus & Succulent Society but got a little disillusioned back in 2005 after seeing succulents growing in Spain outdoors. Confined to a greenhouse you just can't get the plants to their full potential but I think I'm happy again just to enjoy the flowers and have them as part of my life.
