Welcome to day of the cacti


  • I bought a cactus from a school fete in 1976
  • It grew and developed offspring; babies, which budded off the side
  • These babies were potted up separately. They were named and numbered
  • Some were given away, some I kept. Some flourished and some shrivelled up or disappeared
  • I tracked all of them; noted down sizes, flowers, their offspring, their oddities
  • “Web Site of The Day” once on BBC Radio 2 with the old dot com site
