Having fun re-potting part of our cacti collection

This afternoon I re-potted a goodly number of our cacti collection. I should state, using the word collection is a bit presumptuous, as they only fill our window sills in our conservatory. No room for any more, well, that’s until I see one I’d like at a stand at one of the local fêtes.

Even though I wore rubber gloves they were only partial protection from the sharp cacti spines. I hope that I’ll not lose any in the re-potting process, as I unintentionally damaged the roots of some of them. Ah, well, can’t make omelettes without breaking eggs, and it was fun to do.

  1. Like the pot collection for the cacti. Next thing to do will be a spreadsheet of what you have & where bought, as with all the fetes you are bound to do more buying.


  2. Colin, have had that conversation with my wife. Me – there’s always room for one more. Wife – you’ll not be able to pass a stand of cacti at a fete without buying some.


  3. It does get addictive this plant collecting.
    If you go to RHS Wisley on 17-18 June, 20 plant societies are having a show with plants for sale. One is cacti !!
    If you can’t make it, I am sure there will be more opportunities at the Hampton Court Flower Show 4-9 July.
