Oh no, I want some sharp frosts to kill the bugs and slugs!!!
That's a good idea - lots of reasons to celebrate - son's birthday and also OH's birthday - both in the week before Christmas
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

.... Look forward to the next one Dove, thanks for organising it. How about an xmas one?
I'm at MIL's for Christmas Lily - you'll have to arrange it.
We'll be back for New Year
Lovely pic! Wish her a very Happy Birthday from us Enjoy the party
I thought watercress too, or Brooklime, or possibly Creeping Jenny?
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
