A good selection of cacti there, seem to be growing well. One question though where are you getting the seed from? As a lot of seed supppliers only offer mixed seeds.

Hiya Nigel :giggle: I`ll answer that one for you - he`s in the greenhouse picking hundreds of tomatoes. Zig takes his seed mostly from his own plants. He just made a short instruction video - I will find a link for you

Cheers @NigelJ (y)

Done the tomatoes :D

As Tetters said, mostly seed from our own plants. We have tried some mixed seed packets...

These Opuntias and Echinocereus pentalophus were the only ones that made it from a mix packet last year...

We've also tried specific seed from a few different suppliers from the web, so far only the Echinocactus seedlings have done any good out of several different types. The 2 rows at the top are Echinocactus seedlings from a supplier in Italy, the lower 2 are from a mix packet.

The top 2 of these are seedlings from our own seed from last year.
