Cactus and Succulent Review

Post by Sheila » Tue Dec 01, 2020 4:57 pm

Hi,

This is just to let you know that the December issue of the Cactus and Succulent Review is available to download from https://www.cactusandsucculentreview.org.uk/

I'm delighted to include an item on Azorella compacta, one of the most amazing plants in the world. Those shown on the front cover could well be 3,000 years old.

Other items include Climate Change, a magnificent Haworthia and scented cacti flowers.

I hope you will enjoy this issue

An excellent read and beautiful photos.

However, it did not answer my one burning question. What does Azorella compacta taste like? :twisted:
