Cosseting my cacti for the West End & Windlesham Agricultural & Horticultural Show

No too long to go till the West End, Windlesham and District Agricultural and Horticultural Society annual show [WEWDAHS for short].

Last year I submitted two cacti with one winning a third prize. I can’t submit either again, even though they have both responded wonderfully to my cosseting with healthy growth in the last year.

My small cacti collection had a couple of days holiday outdoors in the sun over a week ago. Some have, pleasingly, put on a spurt of growth. What I hope for now is another sunny spell when I can give them a final watering and feeding. Then I can make my choice.

Last year was my first experience of exhibiting and the tension waiting to see the judges verdict.

  1. Hi Tim, I have a Mother of a Thousand if you would like one or more.

    Pick up from Grasmere Road, Red LIon Friday 2-4 when I play chess, or either of the cafes.

    Just let me know when and where.

    I wanted to enter for the show but we are not around that weekend.

  2. Hi Les, a lovely offer for which many thanks. If you’re a member of the West End Ag & Hort I’ll be happy to show it for you. Sadly only one exhibit per category, so it’s one from me and one from my dear wife.
