I bought Colin in 2001 when I was at university. His name sake was my course leader, the name was suggested buy a friend!
When we went to North Walsham yesterday to view a second hand polytunnel (better for the pocket and the environment) the lady was obviously lessening the things she had to do and offered me some of her cacti that were destined for the bin. I accepted her offer eagerly because I love cacti. So here they are.
They’re obvously not in great condition but I don’t care, I think I’d have to wait about 20 years for mine to grow that big!
