TSG Meeting

Post by Chris in Leeds » Sun Apr 28, 2019 7:14 pm

Who's going to the meeting this year ?
I'm hoping to get there and am looking for three Pterocactus if anyone has any of them
hickenii, reticulatus, and neuquensis
I cannot see the first two in the greenhouse even though I thought I had them as I crossed them off my wants list
Any help appreciated

If you could put my name on the three I have listed I would be very happy as your plants sold so fast last year

Would you have more information on programme, date and venue, please? I am always very tempted to go but never seem to be able to fit it in...

Well worth the trip Christian.

Good talks ( and a pub lunch if you want ) and more talks in the afternoon.
