Cactus and Succulent Review

Post by Sheila » Mon Jun 01, 2020 3:33 pm

Hi,

Just to let you know that the June issue of the Cactus and Succulent Review (formerly the Essex Succulent Review) is now available for download at https://www.cactusandsucculentreview.org.uk/

This month I'm delighted to include 'Madagascar's spiny alluaudias' by Colin Walker, well-known to BCSS members and readers of this forum of course, and yes, we have a lemur as well.

And there's plenty more, too much to mention in fact. So do please download the issue and see for yourselves.

Best wishes
Sheila
