All About… Harrow Cactus Society

BCSS (British Cactus & Succulent Society) Harrow Branch (originally Harrow on the Hill Branch) was founded in October 1967. Meetings are held in St.Anselm Church Hall, Uppingham Avenue, Stanmore, Middlesex, HA72HU.

Meeting usually start at 7.30pm, on the second Friday of each month, unless otherwise indicated. We are always happy to see new faces so why not come to a meeting and find out what we have to offer!

Meetings usually include:

  • A talk with slides or plants with break for refreshments and a chat
  • A monthly table show – where size is not always important
  • Members plants sales – sometimes the speaker brings plants too
  • A raffle – with a better chance of winning than with the National Lottery
  • The Branch Library – books to consult and for branch members to borrow

Other annual events:

  • Branch Show
  • Branch barbecue, nursery visits, visits to Branch member’s collections
  • Inter-Branch exchange visits to member’s collections
  • Conventions, shows and other events within Zone 6 and at National level

The Society has a very full calendar of events, which include talks about Carassulas, Gems of Mexico and South American Botanical Gardens.
