I called to see Doug & Jean at Kent Cacti on my way to talk at Croydon Branch, saw all the plants they had ready for Havering, quite a few variegated Haworthias & Gasterias and some nice Adromischus, well worth a look.

Thanks Tony. Yes a very good day. Attendance was up around 25% from last time and attendees stayed longer and shopped harder :eek:

Stall holders appeared very happy, as did the buyers.

Nice to see a lot of new faces there, including many younger people keen to try something new.

Looking forward to 2020 already (tu)
