More Local Cactus News

This time it’s from Edmonton, Canada. Can it be considered local if it’s from the frozen tundra of Western Canada? Sure!

Question: This year I am planning on creating living plant gifts for birthdays and special occasions. Specifically, I want to make cactus bowls and I was hoping you could give me some advice on how I could do this. Thank you for all your great advice.

Some cacti for you to consider for your garden:

– Bunny ears cactus

– Prickly pear cactus

– Rose pincushion

Aloe bellatula

Echinopsis oxygona
