Dates: Thurs April 26th - Sunday April 29th. Here are some of the items on the exhibit by York Branch BCSS. Come and see us and discover what the show judges thought of our exhibit. There are plenty of sales plants on our stand and 3 cactus nurseries in the main halls, along with masses of other horticultural stuff for cactophobes.

Well done York Branch, the two Harrogate shows used to be a bi annual family pilgrimage when I was growing up in East Yorkshire sadly now out of striking range.
Regards Keith.
