Cactus in Osoyoos BC Canada 2024

I was in Osoyoos BC yesterday and noticed all the cactus are nice and big. These have been growing for many years. https://palmsnorth.com/pics/osoyoos/20240511_182350.jpg It's great to see they survive and thrive even with some cold winters. https://palmsnorth.com/pics/osoyoos/20240511_182353.jpg Th...

Make a garden box out of scrap materials

I had some old 4x4 wood posts just laying around my yard along with some concrete slabs. I decided to make use of them and use them for a garden box. The area of my garden really needed some TLC. I wish I took some more pictures. Here's what I started with. https://palmsnorth.com/pics/garden/2024050...

Re: Hooray it's spring again! How was everybody's winter?

Well I didn't protect anything as usual this winter. I have about four rostratas that didn't make it. My trunking rostrata looks great and my other trunking yucca recurvifolia looks like it will pull through. My baccatas look great as well. I guess I will have to wait and see. All my cacti look good...

Re: Hooray it's spring again! How was everybody's winter?

Sorry to hear about your Washingtonia palms! I had a colder winter than usual. Plus lot's more snow.
I'm pretty sure most of my Yucca rostratas are fried. :( My biggest one survived so I'm happy about that.
