Welcome to the Bristol Branch
of the BCSS

We very much regret that, owing to the Coronavirus outbreak, we have taken the decision to cancel all events during April, May and June, including the Bristol Joint Show and the South West Cactus, Succulent and Exotic Plant Fayre. We hope that events later in the year will be going ahead, and will keep you up-to-date with further information as soon as possible.

Welcome to the Bristol Branch of the British Cactus and Succulent Society.

The BCSS is divided into regional zones and Bristol is part of Zone 9 which includes Gloucester and District, Wiltshire and South Wales.

Bristol Branch holds meetings on the third Tuesday of the month at the Filton Community Centre in north Bristol. Prior to each monthly Branch meeting there is a 15-minute discussion on the basics of our hobby, such as pest control, soil mix or watering. Please arrive early if you would like to join us.

See our meetings page for our 2019 programme and our contact page for details of where to find us. See also details of our annual South West Cactus Mart in June.

The cost for the evening's entertainment is a very modest £3.00, or you can buy a season ticket for £25.00 for the year. In addition to the main talk you have the opportunity to chat with other growers over tea and biscuits in the break. Your complimentary raffle ticket offers a chance to win an interesting plant, or maybe a box of chocolates.

You are also welcome to bring any plants along to the meeting that you would like to show to other members, perhaps a plant with spectacular flowers or one that is particularly unusual.

We are a very friendly group so do come along and introduce yourself to us. You will be made very welcome at any of our meetings.
