Adding to our cacti collection

Last weekend we visited the open day of Ottershaw Cacti near Woking.

They are not open to the public, and so an open day is one of the few opportunities to see their cacti collection., apart from when they exhibit at gardening shows. Growing and exhibiting cacti is Daniel Jackson’s hobby. That’s quite some hobby when you have 9 commercial-sized greenhouses full of cacti and succulents. And yes, there is a difference between cacti and succulents. Generally, and I am no expert, cacti have spikes, while succulents are more fleshy.

Naturally, I took some photos, which you might like to see. I’ll not show photos of what we bought for fear of losing them through my negligent care. I bought four and dearest wife two. Maybe next spring I’ll show you.
