Flowering Cactus

I used a very gritty compost, they had been potted in pure bunter  sand,as quarried in Mansfield for building.  To repot, wrap a towel round the cactus so that you can handle it.

You are not allowed to take cameras, phones or any other type of recording apparatus into Highgrove, and you don't get near enough to any windows to look in. I have the book, I bought it cheap from the book people before I went. I intend on having another trip.

Flowering Cactus

This was dumped on me last year. I repotted it, it went outside and fed and watered once a week, left in a sunny spot. It was kept in a cool conservatory over winter, not watered until March, we started watering it once  a week and this happened. Worth the investment in a bottle of cactus feed.
