In addition to plants and pots we offer books, cactus soil and tools, T-shirts, caps, shade and frost cloth, and seasonal Christmas cactus and succulent centerpieces. A desert plant nursery for locals and visitors to roam and enjoy.
B&B Cactus Farm got it’s current name from the original owner’s Bob and Beverly White. They previously grew and sold native plants from their nearby home north of the present location of the nursery. It was decided a warmer location was needed due to prevailing cold nighttime temperatures during the winter, as their home was located adjacent to the Tanque Verde wash. The nursery was started at it’s present location on east Speedway in 1981. At that time the 3.3 acre parcel was vacant land. A fence was erected, a well drilled, 2 acres were cleared of desert vegetation, and the first greenhouses were built. In December 2003 the nursery changed hands. B&B Cactus Farm continues to grow and sell cacti and succulents to landscapers, homeowners, collectors and tourists. Visitors from around the world are drawn to Tucson to marvel at the diverse collection of native and exotic cacti and succulents that grow here.
Visitors can roam and see how cacti and succulents are grown. Greenhouses and shade structures facilitate growing a vast array of species. Many species are grown outside which are acclimated to full sun and our local cold winter nighttime temperatures. In the Fall of 2012, a significant new retail space was remodeled to show off beautifully grown cacti and succulents.
