Hey everyone gather around, I've decide since the Opuntia talks have been so popular the last couple of weeks its time for a give-away...............I have a rooted pad of O. polycantha with a couple of other pads on it that is rooted and ready to go live in another garden. So here's what you need to do, click on my profile over on the right side of the page and email me your name. I'll draw a name from the group and you will have a great new plant for your gardens. Deadline is midnight on August 19th. Do not worry if you live out of town, I will be happy to mail it to you. Get those names into me and cross your fingers.
This is the plant you will receive.
Did someone say what if I'm a follower of Beech Street Gardens do I get anything extra, you bet you do, I will add a 4" potted plant of O. acanthcarpa 'Buckhorn Cholla' also rooted. So once again, set up to follow Beech Street Gardens, get your name to me, and lets see who else is going to have Opuntias in their gardens.
Bonus plant if you are a follower of Beech Street Gardens
Beech Street Gardens is located in a USDA zone 8b, at an elevation of 253 ft./ latitude 45.54983/ longitude 122.603747 in NE Portland, Oregon which is located in the Willamette Valley of the Great Pacific Northwest. My partner Will and I purchased our 1,100 sq. ft. bungalow home that the gardens are based around in the summer of 1990. When the gardens first started there was lawn (2 1/2+ hours of edging and mowing) and a couple of flower beds. Today there is a very small lawn (15 mins. top to edge and mow) and small minor gardens within three major gardens consisting of trees, shrubs, perennials and bulbs. These gardens are based on drought tolerant plants, very close to a Mediterranean style. Plants receive most of their water during the fall, winter, spring months from the rains and with very little help from me during the summer.
