A COUPLE from Abbotts Ann were shocked and delighted when their garden cactus bloomed an incredible 29 flowers.

The plant is not known for sprouting such a high number of flowers, and neighbours and visitors have been calling in to see the unusual plant.

Joyce Reynolds said: “We took a cutting from my daughter’s plant a while back, and it usually grows with two or three plants, but this time it has grown 29!

“We have had lots of neighbours coming round to look at it and take photos as they say that this is not common for these plants.

“I have never seen it look like this and it all came out all of a sudden.”

Bill added: “It was actually looking a bit tired so I watered it to try to bring it round and it certainly did the trick!”
