2016 is the first year I have been able to do any gardening. I live in southwestern Ohio, USA. I love roses, orchids, toad lilies...everything 😁

Then I hand cut some taller grass in from on my flower bed. And found this piece of prickly pear growing beneath the grass. Good think I was hand cutting it and not mowing. Still surprised I didn’t cut it in half. I dug it up. And it has a big root ball. So guess this was some disregarded root of the prickly pear. So I moved it with the other two pieces. It is the center piece in the first photo.

While weeding I found this piece of disregarded prickly pear from when I took it out. It had rooted itself under some sedum. I took it out and planted it with the other surviving piece. It is the top little piece in the first picture.

So I had prickly pear cactus in one of my flower beds for a few years. It had not been doing well and it was a pain to weed around. So I took it out. All but on two pieces looked dead. I took the two pieces and just kind of threw them in a place with a little dirt figured it they survived great if not ok too. The piece lowest in the pic of the three is one of those to pieces.
