HELLO FORKERS!

I often shop in Lidl - their own brand shower cream for sensitive skin is great Had a lovely piece of Scotch Rib Eye steak from them for supper yesterday.  Dried fruit's good too, and we got some good Rioja a while back.

Aaargh, it could be sunscorch if you've been letting the foliage get wet and it's been in bright sunshine - Christmas Cacti do better in semi-shade, not bright sunshine.

Water the compost only, not the foliage.

My thoughts are the same as Bob's - it looks to me as if snails have been grazing off the surface of the plant and it's then calloused over.

Slugs and snails love them.

Lesley, Wildies are members of a Foodie Forum http://www.wildfood.info/index.php .  We started off on the BBC Food Messageboard, and when that closed the wonderful Riocaz started Wildfood.  One of our number, Mamta, was featured in the Guardian yesterday http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2014/oct/31/how-to-make-curry-onion-ginger-garlic-mamta-gupta-back-to-basics-henry-dimbleby but we're not all as elevated as her - we're a very friendly chatty bunch, just like the Forkers

What is this pond plant please?

Yvie, I'm a Wildie as well as a Forker - we Wildies are on a Food Forum, and being experts we've had our sprouts on since February - better safe than sorry
