Kaufman County Master Gardener Robert Castro was at the Riter C. Hulsey Public Library in Terrell on September to talk about cactus. Castro explained how cacti differ from other plants and talked about how to grow them in your landscape. Perhaps most importantly, he explained how to handle them without getting those painful spines in your fingers. Participants could pot a small cactus to take home.
