Cactus Country. Part 2.

Hi There!

Lets continue our journey around Cactus Country.  All I can remember saying was wow!  Look at this one, look at that!  It was pretty awe-inspiring to see so many different types of cacti.  They had a pretty informative guide-book and a find it sheet for kids, but I do have a couple of gripes.

1.There were no identification name tag/plates thingies or whatever you want to call them.  So how does a cacti novice like me know what I’m looking at or want to purchase for myself later down the track???  I know it might cost a lot of money and take time to do and maintain but plant names are highly important in my mind.

2. Then when we get to the nursery area its nigh on empty!!  What the!!  I could have counted on my fingers and toes the amount of different species in the nursery.  Consider this, Cactus country has 10 acres of display gardens and their website states ” Australia’s largest Cactus garden with an extensive plant sales area”.

Maybe I was just there at the wrong time, maybe someone had bought all their stock the day before, maybe I just missed out.  Maybe I was just feeling deflated that I couldn’t dive straight into a cacti collecting frenzy.

Enough of the self-pity, one thing is for sure.  I will be going back to Cactus Country, it really was quite fantastic!
