Jebus 13 trays Shocked. I reckon a fence is a top idea shortly. I have been toying with the idea myself for quiet some time now, the perimeter of a large garden. T. pachanoi on one side, T. bridgesii and T. spachianus on the other sides with echinopsis and lobivia along the front. I have plenty of all its just a matter of gettin off my butt and gettin everything done.

Actually the 13 trays = 546 plants is about 1/2 of what i think i'll need for a double row. Yeah i get a bit ambitious when im propagating sometimes, then i havta find room for them where the boss wont notice Rolling Eyes
We should start organizin workin bees in each state PD. I think i need a mate with a bobcat & a 10t tipper.
Two sides of the Pilosocereus, the 3rd side in Cereus sp (i have heaps of seedlings but i have no idear of their identity yet) & possably a mixture of Trichs on the 4th side sounds like a plan.

13 trays?
For authenticity you could use also Pachy/Stenocereus marginatus. The Mexican Fence Post cactus. Smile
