Day Out

Had a day out to visit two nurseries last weekend, the first was Southfields Cacti Nursery in Lincolnshire.

They have a huge selection of cacti, it's just like being a kid in a sweet shop.

 

 

 

 

 

After making a few purchases it was onto Abbey Brook Cactus Nursery in Derbyshire. Probably more succulents than cacti here, quite a small sales area compared to the display greenhouse.

 This Ferox was a stunning plant, very rare and doesn't pup.

 

 

 Quite a a lot of very nice Gasteria, Aloe crosses, a few of which came home me.

 

This is the haul from the days shopping (not the little dish on the right, should have moved that before I took the photo)

 This is just a small selection of photo's from the day, both places well worth a visit if cacti float your boat.
