Mesem Study Group event

I've no idea why this event was not mentioned on here nor on the calendar of events but the biennial MSG show was held today at Banstead. There were loads of wonderful plants on display, the sales tables were well stocked and reasonably priced and lots of friendly and helpful people made this a thor...

Re: Seller List - South East Cactus Mart Saturday April 7th 2018

Another superb event Dave but it quickly became too crowded to be able to peruse in depth all the plants on offer. Despite that, as usual, I managed to spend much more than intended. Sorry that Ralph from Cactus Shop (my favourite seller) couldn't make it - hope your crankshaft gets sorted in time f...

Re: Facebook as a tool to support the BCSS

alanbromley's post resonates with sense. Prior to this thread I was unaware of the pair of Facebook pages - having checked them out I would suggest binning the BCSS page, which seems to lead down a blind alley, but develop the Group page as it is livelier (but less informative) than the forum.

Re: Southern Area Cactus & Succulent Mart . Saturday August 19th 2017

Just got back home from a splendid plant sale. Plenty of choice, even for those of us that have no truck with spiny things. Knowledgeable and chatty sellers and met lots of friends from Edenbridge and Croydon branches plus the usual regular faces. Apart from the National probably the best Mart I've ...

Re: In your opinion, which are the 3 worst pests in succulents?

Just bought a new 1 litre spray pack of Provado and I'm not happy! Active ingredient "deltamethrin 0.0075g/l" - formerly "0.15g/l thiacloprid". "Gives up to 2 weeks control" - formerly "keeps working for up to 4-6 weeks" But the killer is that Mealy Bug is neither mentioned nor appears on the packag...
