Cacti & Succulents

They’ve become increasingly popular in recent years – and for good reason! Cacti and succulents are a brilliant addition to the home: they look lovely and are very low maintenance, making them a great option for a range of requirements. 

Both cacti and succulents are able to store water in their leaves or stems, meaning they’re very drought tolerant. All cacti are succulents, however the opposite is not true – the difference being that cacti have areoles, while succulents do not.

While they are low maintenance, cacti and succulents still require some care to ensure they stay happy and healthy.

These prickly houseplants enjoy plenty of light, and some watering – this should be done only when the soil is dry (around once every week or so during growing season, and less frequently during the winter months). Don’t let cacti or succulents sit in water, as this can cause root rot.

From small to large, plain to flowering, we have a large range of types, shapes and sizes in store now ready to green up your home!
