Do you have any idea how many years she has been growing this and the Echinocereus? For some in that genus, its not the winter lows that I worry about, as much as lack of summer heat.. I guess she has created a hot micro climate for these? I plan a 'hot' bed for some of those...

The best insight you could get on this garden and its plants is from what Amy mentioned... refer to Stephanie's superb article on the construction... to be followed by one (or more?) on the plants!
