Welcome to the homepage of The Isle of Wight Branch of The British Cactus & Succulent Society. We meet once a month from February through to December on the second Saturday of the month at Church Close Community Centre in Wootton.
Around half way through the evening we stop for refreshments consisting of a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit at a small cost of £1.50 this also entitles you to an entry in our monthly plant raffle, you can also browse through the Branch Library or perhaps discuss any problems you might have with your plants or identify one from your collection which you have brought along, many of our members are only too happy to help. Occasionally a visiting speaker will also bring a selection of sale plants which can be an exciting chance to obtain the odd cactus or succulent which you otherwise might not find locally!
As well as our monthly meetings we also attend a number of Island gardening Events where we sell plants at extremely good prices (even if we do say so ourselves) and advertise the society, we always look forward to seeing new faces so feel free to stop by our stand to introduce yourself and take away a few new additions.
We're a very friendly bunch and we promise we don't bite! we are always happy to welcome new members and visitors alike whether you have a small windowsill collection or a couple of overflowing greenhouses everyone is welcome to come and chat and learn with us about these wonderful plants.
