Wherein We Get Referenced in a News Article


Apparently we were a source of information for this article Cacti look sharp in local gardens from the Fort Myers (FL) News-Press.

It’s a nice article about cactus in Florida, so we approve. It would have been nice if they had called us to ask us questions, but it’s always nice to get credit when the website is used for an article. They also have some good pictures, so it wouldn’t hurt to click through.
