Thank you Palmbob for the great article and pics of your amazing garden full of my favorite plants. A couple of things I would like to share.
When pruning or planting cactus and other mean plants, try a full sheet of newspaper folded in half several times the long way used as a kind of sling to support the weight and stabilize the plant. You can really control it without touching it or getting too close but may need two for a larger plant.
To get those nasty little glochids out, spread some Elmer's glue over the area, let it dry and peel it off slowly. You may have to repeat the process but it will get most of them out.
Happy gardening
