Add something special to your garden
Do you want to give your garden a unique and exotic feel? You came to the right place! With our cacti, you can turn any garden into something special. Even in a formal or modern garden, succulents can add something unexpected and spectacular. The critical element to creating a garden that evokes a tropical image is choosing plants that look exotic but can survive in our climate. With its strong shape, sharp spines and unique character, a cactus will immediately give that effect.
Planting your cactus
Cactuses come in many different shapes, sizes and forms. All in all, it can be stated that they are perfect for a drought-resistant or desert-inspired urban jungle and that they can flourish with the littlest bit of help. They add structure and architectural depth to any garden and will make your outdoor space look truly special. Cacti don’t require much maintenance, even water isn’t always required, and are pest- and disease-free. They do prefer a location in the sun. Also, a sloped spot in well-drained soil is preferred. Fertilizing cacti isn’t a must, but it can lead to faster growth and better flowering.
Many shapes, forms and sizes
As said, the cactus can take on many forms: from a columnar cactus to a barrel-shaped stem and everything in between. Some of them even carry flowers. One of our favourites is the iconic Echinocactus grusonii, also known as the Golden barrel cactus. It thrives in full sun and is easy to recognize, with its deep ribs bearing yellowish spines and, on mature plants, yellow flowers. Since cacti are evergreen, they are breath-taking year-round.
