My son has had a love affair with cacti for quite a while now. I told him that when I lived in Kitchener I would sometimes go to Belgian Nurseries just to walk through their cacti gardens. He was immediately intrigued. One day when we had to go Guelph for some reason so we dropped in for a visit.
My lad was delighted by the rows and rows of cacti, so many different varieties…. how delighted could a cacti loving lad be? He was amazed.
We learned that a lot of their cacti came from Colassanti’s so when we went up to Point Pelee, our friends also took us to Colassanti’s for lunch and let the lad wander through their cacti display.
This picture doesn’t do justice to the size of these cacti. The lad was quite impressed and thought it would be neat if he could grow a cactus this large.
Belgian Nurseries doesn’t just have a great cacti display but numerous other plants as well. I can often find plants there that I can’t find at other nurseries. I urge you, if you are ever in the K-W area, stop in at Belgian Nurseries. Spend a good hour (or more) wandering through the greenhouses. Be delighted and amazed at the sheer variety of plants available. And bring home a cactus or two… I know we did! 🙂
