Less than 4 weeks to go and 21 nurseries in one hall, probably the largest UK cactus & succulent sale apart from the National - it's looking good.

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 been to and I've been to a few........well, I need to given the speed with which plants die under my "care"
Wonderful event....many thanks to the organisers and see you next year.

PS:- I spent a small fortune!.... don't tell Mrs F.
