A Trip to Lowes

I needed to go to Lowes this week and I took a trip through the garden center while I was there. It was fascinating! The garden section of the home centers back home aren’t even open. And you certainly won’t find these plants there:

I really enjoyed walking around and seeing all of these amazing cacti and succulents. 

Have a great day!

    It makes sense that the plants would be different, but I never thought of it. They bring back a wonderful memory of going to Knotts Berry Farm in California back in the 1970s and seeing Jade plants being used in borders.

    Fascinating plants. My second favourite greenhouse at Kew Gardens is the Princess Diana house -it’s sectioned into different climate zones so you walk through the hot dry desert and then sample the humid jungle marvelling at all the different plant species as you go.

    Oh, a breath of home! =) I miss prickly pear most of all – yummy jelly! There’s some in a yard down the street, but they don’t take care of it, and it’s a mess. Thanks for sharing the pictures!

  4. WOW! Those are amazing. I haven’t seen many like that around here either!

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many varieties in one place. Very interesting, thanks for sharing.

    Looks like my backyard, and yes, they are in pots. To answer lois92346, you wrap them in paper, lay on their sides and handle them by the root ball.

    How in the world would you transplant the spikey ones? If we don’t have a break in the drought here in southern California, we’ll be forced to start using these in our landscaping.

    Too picky and spiny for your carry-on. Darn! Great pix.

  10. Nope! Never have seen one of those at our Lowes, although they are so beautiful I would love to. Too bad they wouldn’t survive where I live. Thanks for showing them off!
