Australian collection.

Nice what you can do when some of you have the ideal climate and space. We can only look on in envy from cool old UK.

Space and Time. He started growing them 67 years before this video.

He lives in Gilgandra in the colder part of Australia, the South. "Gilgandra regularly hits minus 3".

This is a video more targeted at gardeners.

Don't think he would get away with those outside in Manchester or Nottingham UK. How does he manage to put caps on all those tall Cerei outside? Plants will often stand dry cold or such cold for a time but not British type humid or wet cold or we would all be growing the taller cacti outside.

Hi everyone,

Lester would be close to 80 years now and has decided not to post cacti across Australia. His prices were always reasonable and willing share his knowledge.

Regards,

Trevor
