British Cactus & Succulent Society
Gloucester & District Branch
We meet on the second Saturday of each month at 2:15 for 2:45 pm. Meetings generally include a speaker (with a digital presentation or slides, and/or plants), plant sales, table show, raffle and tea or coffee. There is an entrance fee of £2 per person to cover hire of the hall, speakers expenses and refreshments. Juniors under 18 are admitted free but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Visitors are very welcome to join us. See our programme of events for details of meetings. You can also download a printable version of our programme.
Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) our monthly meetings have been cancelled until further notice. When we restart meetings, all those on our branch mailing list will be informed and this page will be updated.
We also organise shows, displays, plant sales and auctions, greenhouse open days and we have our own library. We attract members from a wide area, including parts of Worcestershire and Herefordshire as well as all parts of Gloucestershire. They range from windowsill growers with just a few plants to enthusiasts with multiple greenhouses. You can see some plants belonging to one of our members in our picture gallery.
We have members willing to give introductory talks on cacti and succulents to local groups (gardening clubs, WIs, etc.). Please contact us for details.
