    Gardening Thread

    Fishman65 and I have decided to start a gardening thread for pics, tips and other green thumb discussion.

    Here's some pics of my cacti that bloomed this year:

    Re: Gardening Thread

    Great idea for a thread! I love walking around nurseries looking at plants.

    I like your cacti, Vee. We've had them in the past but never had flowers like that. I have considering making up one of those terrariums with succulents as a present for my mum in the past. She has a few. I saw some nice bottle ones a few months back before the lockdown. One was sideways on a wooden stand and it looked like a ship in a bottle style with sections cut out along the top.

    For her birthday I got her a dwarf cherry, Kojo-no-mai. So beautiful and unlike most cherry trees it grows outwards as well as upwards. I will have to post a pic.

    Well, remember, I can grow those cacti because the winters are so warm down here. We only get snow and frost up in the mountains.

    Do you all bring your succulents and tropical plants indoors for the winters?

    yes, post pics!

    It's legal in CA, N. We don't have to grow it in our backyard anymore. Get with the times :P

    Don't you mean get with the high times?

    You can buy cacti to but you're still growing it.

    I got you pegged for a purist.

    These look lovely Vee well done!! And in all the years my Mum grew cacti, not one of them flowered. As you say it must be your climate. My own memories from childhood concerning cacti are painful ones, some have such lethal spines don't they.
