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.
