Photo: Saguaros for sale at the Desert Botanical Garden
These are rather small saguaros, of course. All someone would have to do is dig a small hole, plant the cactus, water it occasionally, and wait until the saguaro is about 80 years old, and the saguaro will grow to about 12 tall and sprout its first arm.
The slow growth and expensive price are why it is so sad when a storm like the two recent heavy wind and rain storms we have recently had causes saguaros to topple over, as I have shown in some photos recently.
Today is the last day of the DBG's semi-annual plant sale, but I am sure that all of the saguaros are sold by now.
Today is Sunday, so we have new photos posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. This week we are showing some of the marine life in the Sea of Cortez, Mexico.
