Welcome to the Sussex Region
of The British Cactus and Succulent Society
The BCSS is a National Society formed to promote interest in and enjoyment of cacti and succulents. It is organised into a number of geographical regions and there are currently two Branches in Sussex, see our zone map.
We are delighted to announce that a new Branch is soon to be
formed. The Branch will be known as Rother Valley, and the meetings
will be held in Sedlescombe, starting in March 2019. More details of
the new Branch will follow soon.
As well as regular meetings the Zone organises visits to places of interest, nurseries and some of the excellent private collections which are found in the area.
We have also been exploring the possibilities of arranging meetings at different locations throughout the Zone, intended to encourage less experienced growers to attend.
Each year we hold a Zone 12 Convention and a Zone 12 Annual Show.
For details of this year's Convention see our
Sussex has always been a good place to grow cacti and has been home to some major collections. See our History page for more information on the BCSS in Sussex.
You will always be welcome at any Branch meetings. If you can get to any of our venues please come and join us.
