|Fuerteventura Botanical Garden|
I am a plant killer. As hard as I try I haven’t in all my years been able to keep a plant alive.
I have even killed the ‘unkillable’ Cactus. Yes, I am that person.
Before resigning myself to plastic foliage I thought I would give the much Instagrammed Succulents a try.

So far, so good. I have yet to send them to plant heaven.
Really though I was inspired after our recent holiday to Fuerteventura where we saw the beautiful Botanical Garden (part of the Oasis Park) which has over 2,000 varieties of cactus – who knew?
Seems the humble cactus is having a moment as I’ve spotted them on the high street too. Perfect for tapping into this season Mexican kids fashion trend.
