growing cactus outdoors

daveycrockett(4)January 12, 2006

Hi, does anyone near Sudbury, ON have either a Brittle Pear (Opuntia Fragilis) or Beehive Cactus (Escobaria vivipara) for sale or trade? I've had a Prickly Pear (O. Polyacantha) growing outside for two winters now. I find it fascinating to watch people's faces when they see it growing outside where winters average about -20 degrees C and about 3to 4 feet of snow cover. My Prickly Pear has three or four pads and I would be willing to remove and root one or two pads to trade for the other two species.

Davey, I'll back you 100% if you want to report such a flagrant violation of GW rules.
