The Cactus

I have always had an interest in cacti, my grandparents used to have a corridor leading to a music/play room in their house, it was like a conservatory as it was mostly made from glass. Along the corridor were shelves with cacti all along them.

I remember when I was little I used to run down the corridor to the play room as fast as I could so that the prickles couldn’t get me on the way past. Fond memories, I have always found cacti fascinating!

This cute little cactus has been with us in two homes now, and it’s so very easy to look after! In our old flat we had it in the bathroom and the steam seemed to be enough moisture for it, so I never had to water it! Now we keep it on the windowsill in the kitchen, right near the sink, and it’s happy as Larry there too!

If you have shortage of outdoor space, why don’t you look at getting a little cactus or even a few to put around your home.

You can get them from most garden centres, or if you want something more specialised you can find a range of specialist growers online. My local chap is called Tony Irons, which is who I bought my succulents from. You can see his website here.

Obviously, make sure you keep them out of the reach of children and pets to avoid a prickly surprise!
