Very impressive Mark, very nice greenhouse. You might well know that those 2000 seedlings grow up and get bigger and bigger Very Happy Then you gonna have the problem what we all have: lack of space. I am full of envy about your crucigera.

Space will not be a problem, see what it's attached to. The cactus house is behind this lot. I was very, very lucky to be in the right place at the right time. As for the seedlings I only need 3 of each species/field collection so there will be plenty to go around you lot.

The M.crucgiera, if you will belive it, came from E.bay. The only problem I can forsee is that during the summer, from May to september all the houses are open to the public and I expect that at some point, something will go missing. There is nothing I can do about it and in truth it is a small price to pay for not having the cost of buying a glasshouse and heating it. There are staff around all the time but you know what folk are like. Having said that the gardens were open last year and nothing disappeared.

This last picture is my favourite plant. I had seen a few of these a number of years ago on a nursery stand at a show (Southfield's) and this year they had them for sale. Its M.scrippsiana and the flowers are just about to push throught the wool.

Are there only cacti that they can visit or other plants as well? Lucky that nothing disappeared. Nice clump of scrippsiana, I hope to visit Southfield nursery next year. That crucigera must be an old plant.

The local parks dept use the gardens to grow all the foliage, flowering pot plants, the bedding plants and the hanging basket plants for the whole island. There is a small collection of about 50 epiphyllum hybrids which I have grown from leaf cuttings brought from E-bay. Hugo, if you are angling for a few days holiday on a small scottish isle then you will be most welcome. I have plenty of space at my house.
