Harry,
Very impressive. Where do all those plants end up? Are C&S that popular over there?

What an operation!!!!!

Hi Ed,
C & S are nt that popular in Holland anymore as it used to be. This nursery exports through whole Europe (and maybe more). Some years ago I was at Kakteen Haage in Germany, which is maybe the oldest nursery in Europe. Most of their plants came from Ubink - Holland.

Thanks Ed,
i love seeing photos like this. I didn't know Bach's was that large. And those Saguaro are fantastic. I'd love to visit that place.

Bach's is so large, you could literally get lost on the driveway to the parking lot.
