Fathers Day Cacti

For Fathers Day my two sons gave me four cactus to add to my collection and a wooden box to display them in.  One of the cacti was far too large for the box and so was substituted with a couple of smaller cacti and a succulent I already had.  I had wanted to create a mini garden for the centre of the table and using cacti and succulents will make it easy to maintain and they should outgrow the garden to quickly.


The cacti and succulents have been planted in a 50:50 mix of compost and horticultural sand and topped off with a layer of grit.





I will post pictures of the rest of my small cactus collection later in the week.

We moved into this house in 2013. At that time the garden was a blank canvas, This blog is a scrapbook of my gardening journey. Something I can look back on and remember the highs and lows, something that perhaps other people will enjoy reading and hopefully commenting on along the way.


    1. They are easy to look after. But can look fantastic. Its that balance between the little amount of water they need and the amount they really want to grow well.
