Greenstock haul

rickta66(Brisbane)September 27, 2009

Hello all,

I shared a ride to Greenstock with Matt - here is most of what I picked up.

There was lots of lovely plants being carried out.


Alc. Heloisae


Alc.Imperialis Peter Tristram

Alc.Brasiliana - another shot

Neo.Tiger - I can't wait for this one to colour up!

Aechmea Mulfordii Malva - slightly damaged a steal 2plants for $15 Aus.

Vr.Gigantea Nova

The last plant I picked up before I ran out of cash was Alc.Imperialis Landsendt Blue Grey - I didn't take a photo , I forgot about it.

Great haul Rick..heloisae is may fav; but I also have the Landsendt blue grey and it makes a good balance amongst red alcs. Greenstock is magic place!

Hi Rick,
I only have three things to say;
1. What a beautiful haul you brought home with you.
2. I wish I had a bigger back yard.
3. I wish I lived closer to Greenstock.

All the best, Nev.

Hi Rick, hi Matt, great haul. Thanks for showing them. The only Greenstock plants I get to see in the flesh are the few they distribute through Bunnings stores. Wouldn't I love to get up there!

Nev, maybe we need to hire a bus - its only 1200k's or so, after all. Cheers, Paul

Hi Matt,

Good to see you got in on the haul as well.

I really like your chantinii, so anytime you find yourself running out of space in the yard, you can send it down to me. I might not have room for alcantareas but I could fit in a chantinii.

Good stuff, all the best, Nev.

*green green green* I'm green with envy!
I wish I had gone now! I couldn't get anyone interested from my area, and it was too far to go on my own, and too costly to pay the fuel on my own. I would've had to spend my Brom money just to get there!
I'm glad you guys had a good day and it looks as though you got some gorgeous plants. I love that Alc. heloisae!
Maybe next year I can get there? I have 12 months to turn someone onto Bromeliads and then con them into a trip to Bellmere! he he.
