Saturday's walk around the nursery - Part 1

These are miniture cacti and are 2 inches or less in height. Many of these are imported from around the world so maybe you have them growing in your garden too. It is always a peasure to walk around the nursery and see what is in bloom and available.

When you are creating these container gardens, be sure and use very porous soils. For dish gardens and mixed planters, choose ones the same rest periods.Here are some suitable miniature species of cacti and succulents that are most suitable for growing indoors.

For dish gardens and indoor container gardens, we need small plants that don’t grow out of bounds. There are a number of cacti and succulents that fulfill this need. These are often used as house plants, and are especially suitable for apartments and those with limited indoor space.
