Dear organizers!

I come from Hungary, from Nagykőrös, Hungary in the centre. I have been collecting frost-resistant cacti for 6 years. I'm very interested in your program. I would like participate in winter hardy cacti test. My favourite genus is Echinocereus, Opuntia, Cylindropuntia.
In summer it is hot, sunny, in Winters are cold and frosty, and often very dry. In autumn it unfortunately often rains, true test!

  The temperature:  
  in winter +5 to –18 (occur -25) C   (rainy)  
  in summer about  20 to 30 (occur near 40) C    (dry)  
  in spring about  5 to 20 C    (dry and rain)  
  in autumn about  10 to 15 C    (rainy)  

It is very difficult for us in Hungary to get a Pediocactus and Sclerocactus plants....old my dream, please help, even if  my be late. 

Best wishes
Pál Vajda
