Welcome to EASY CACTUS

REBUTIA ALBIPILOSA

Cactus and other succulents have a universal appeal and almost every household has at least one from this huge and varied group of plants.

Cactus are leafless plants that use thickened stems to store water and food stores for times of drought, the same principle applies to the other succulents but there are some main differences between cacti and all other succulents.

What could be more inspiring than to see a freshly opened flower emerging from a living stone!

All cacti share these properties without exception:

  • The seed has two halves (dicotyledon)
  • The seed pod (berry) is not internally divided but seeds are dispersed within the flesh
  • The plant has pincushion like areoles, this is where the spines sprout from
  • All cacti are perennials
  • The petals arise from the end of the top of the ovary

We are now open after the winter break.

We are delighted to welcome all past and present customers and to wish you Happy Growing!!

RE orders - for your convenience and to save any concerns that you may have -PLEASE NOTE:-

1. that orders are despatched within seven WORKING days at the latest, by first class post, so please be patient - they often are sent sooner than this but please allow 7 working days before worrying about them.

2. It is helpful if we can put something on the package for if you are out, eg "please leave in porch if out", "please leave with neighbour if out". There is a space for this in the Customer Notes on the order form.

3. Before contacting us re non receipt please check with your LOCAL SORTING OFFICE as in most cases your packages will be there. (We know this because they will eventually be sent back to us as "not called for" otherwise!)

4. plants are sent without pots and compost, ready for potting up. (They cannot be sent in pots with compost as the compost is dry and falls out; also postage would be much more expensive, we try to keep it as low as possible but Royal Mail has implemented large postal rises as it is. )

5. we are so sorry, but we do not sell large specimens 4. we are so sorry, but we do not do not sell in wholesale quantities

6. most queries you may have for us are answered on the site
